“The Cell Group is a small church within the church”

 

In the beginning, God created the first family with Adam and Eve, and God’s gift to the mankind through Jesus Christ is the church, where those who confess Jesus is their Lord and Savior gather regularly. Apostle Paul explained that, “The church is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way” (Ephesians 1:23). A church is the gathering of people, but Jesus Christ is the head of the church and fills everything in every way, unlike some clubs where people with the same interests gather.

 

The Sunday services are open to everyone and the worship service is filled with the grace for the whole congregation in attendance, and it may not be personalized specifically for you. Therefore, after attending the service, before the grace had any chance to transform you, you are already back to your regular routine. Therefore, it should be the role of a Cell Group to help the grace work in your daily life.

 

Rev. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church, started the Cell Groups to help each believer experience the sanctification of his life. His method can be summarized in two things; one was to encourage them to repent their sins, and the other was to encourage them to testify their faith.

 

Repenting of our sins is not an easy task for us, but by repenting we can go closer to God. We should love God and live our lives according to the will of God always, and when we didn’t, we should repent our sins. The things that the members repent at the Cell Group meetings should not be shared outside of the group. Rev. Wesley’s Cell Groups became very successful, as the members were liberated from the shackles of their old sins by repenting.

 

Testifying and sharing your life allow you to reflect upon your own life in the Word of God and realize your accountability, and then you will appreciate the grace of God in your life and that God walks with you. Rev. Wesley summed up a Christian’s life; “The best of all is God is with us.”

 

If you are lacking vitality in your life of faith or are not passionate about worship, perhaps you may be just going through the motions without the conviction. The Cell Group is the place where you can be spiritually recharged in the grace of God to experience the kingdom of heaven on earth.
