As a Bible study leaders we really don’t know who we have in our class rooms. I don’t mean we don’t know their names or some details describing their lives. I mean we don’t know what hidden or secret little sins are masked behind the smiles our students wear. We don’t know the conviction they may be wrestling with or how overwhelmed they feel. The pain they live with or the regrets that torment them are often hidden by manicured appearances, pretty smiles, and polite greetings. Sometimes people look like fine church going Christians on the outside, but they are a total mess on the inside.

Bible study brings the light of God and the magnifying glass of God into the dark recesses of our hearts. When God looks deeply into our messy lives it can be an overwhelming experience. Those moments may be quiet and calm, or they may be emotionally overwhelming. They will probably happen at home. But, they may happen in your class. Simply because the people have been in the Word, and you are leading them in a discussion of the Scriptures you have the potential to see God work in your class.

As Bible study leaders we need to be aware that there is more going on than we realize in the hearts and minds of our students.

What do we do? Great question. Join us on this edition of Precept Radio.
