I want to share with you this topic about creating your own religious group, it is something that has helped me grow closer to God and Jesus Christ in a meaningful way that I never imagined would happen to me, but it did and I can truly say I am so blessed and happy to have joined a youth and young adult group in my local church. Anyone from any age and religion can create a religious group of their own where you and other members of the group can share and spread God’s love and bible teachings to others who might want to learn more about the bible, or Jesus. Creating a group like this, will help you grow closer to God and meet others who are far from Him, or are already faithful to Him, but want to spread his love to others who do not know Him yet as their savior, but are curious.
In Hebrew 10:25 it reads:
“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
When everyone in a Christian group encourages each other no matter what age they are, where they are with their knowledge of God and the bible; it makes a positive difference in God and Jesus’s eyes when they see everyone helping each other out in a meaningful way.
As a group, make some time to pray together at the beginning and then at the end of each group session, doing this will make you feel like you just welcomed God and Jesus in your day, then as a farewell to God and Jesus at the end. Group praying will also strengthen and encourage each person in the group.
On the good days, thank God for all of the wonderful gifts he has given you; on the bad days, remind each of you of the great things God has done for us, to keep living for Him.
You can shine a light into other people around you.
“Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.”
-1 Peter 2:12
A religious group definitely has helped me in a spiritual and motivating way to grow more in my Catholic faith. Before, I only knew that Jesus and God existed but was not fully close to my faith in them both.
I hope that this post sparks a little motivation to start one.
You simply can invite as many people as you want into your group and share your own life stories of your relationship with God and Jesus, do bible readings, discussing with each other a weekly bible passage, watch or listen motivational movies about Jesus and religious music. Create your own retreat group trips.
