Avoid These 5 BAD Reasons to Lead a Bible Study

At Hendrickson Rose, we’ve been busy writing a series of Bible studies based on our most popular titles and we asked ourselves, “How can we equip everyday folks (who are not teachers or pastors or scholars) to lead their small groups confidently?” So, we set out to writing a Bible study leader guide (which is included in each of the Rose Visual Bible Study books coming out in June!) We wanted to share some helpful tips, do’s and don’ts, popular myths, and characteristics of effective Bible study leaders. We thought we’d share some helpful advice with you as a sneak peek here:

5 BAD Reasons to Lead a Bible Study

  1. You want to wow others with your biblical knowledge.
    “Love . . . does not boast, it is not proud” (1 Corinthians 13:4).
  2. You’re seeking a hidden personal gain or profit.
    “We do not peddle the word of God for profit” (2 Corinthians 2:17).
  3. You want to tell people how wrong they are.
    “Do not condemn” (Romans 2:1).
  4. You want to fix or rescue people.
    “It is God who works in you to will and to act” (Philippians 2:13).
  5. You’re being pressured to do it.
    “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God?” (Galatians 1:10).
