Did you drift away from attending Bible classes when COVID came along? We’re all creatures of habit, good or bad. Form good habits and good things can happen — and vice versa (Galatians 6:7-9). Has it become a habit for you to come to worship on Sunday morning but leave when Bible study starts? Do you stay at home on Wednesday night? Which of the following fits you?
- I come to Bible study every once in a while.
- I used to come but have quit.
- I don’t need to come. I know enough already.
- I don’t think it’s important.
- I really ought to come but I’m out of the habit.
- I really want to come, but just haven’t done it yet.
While you are pondering the categories, see if you disagree with or dismiss the following biblical principles:
- Every Christian needs to grow (2 Peter 3:18).
- God’s word causes us to grow (1 Peter 2:2).
- In time we should be able to teach others (Hebrews 5:12-14).
- We should grow and help others grow (Hebrews 10:24-25).
- We have personal responsibility to share our time, influence, talents, and knowledge with others (Ephesians 4:16).
It’s said that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to heaven is paved with good intentions, immediate action, and consistent effort. Why not get on the right road now? Start attending Bible classes regularly. The soul you save may be your own.
