As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.
Authentic followers of Jesus have been taught, challenged to live out what they have learned, and then take what they have learned and share it with others. Small groups are the very best way to experience this learning, living and sharing of the good news. We can't love others in any meaningful way if we don't first get to know them. Building relationships with other Christians also gives us the opportunity to learn from each other how to apply the Bible to our daily lives. And time for meaningful discussion and prayer helps us realize we aren't alone in our questions, joys, and struggles.
