How to Deepen Your Commitment to God and the Church

By

The BibleReligion probably plays a big role in your life already. And now you’re looking to help it play an even larger one. Well, this is something you can and should be doing. An interest in the church and God should be encouraged from a young age. And, as a youth, there is plenty you can do to deepen your interest and commitment. Don’t think there are only opportunities for older members of the church. These are some wonderful things you can start doing right now.

Lead Worship

Take charge of your future in the church and commit yourself to leading some worship. You may already have a worship leader, but you might want to offer to help them out. They will probably be thankful they have someone else backing them up and assisting them. If you are musically inclined then leading the worship each week or so is a brilliant way of making God a central part of your life. You will need to practice and meet up with other musicians. By leading worship, you deepen your commitment to the church, and to Jesus himself.

Form Cell Groups

Lots of congregations like to have cell groups across the church. This is where the congregation will split into smaller groups. They will meet up at someone’s home each week, month, or fortnight, and discuss scripture. Cell groups are an excellent way of being social and getting different interpretations of the Bible. It’s important to hear from everyone and see what input they can give. Think about having one meeting in four that is purely a social where you go out and do something. This helps promote a strong bond between the group, and improves relations.

Volunteer

A great way of getting more involved in Christianity is to start helping out at the church. This is an awesome way of deepening your interest and working closely with the leaders of the church. You can seek their advice, ask them about questions you might have, and get more involved with helping to maintain the church. This is something you can do easily, and they will most likely be thankful for the help. Speak to one of the leaders about the possibility of doing this as much as possible. Any area in which you can offer your assistance is going to be greatly appreciated. And you’ll be doing good work for God by doing so.

Become a Missionary

One of the most exciting opportunities available to you right now is to become a missionary. There are plenty of programs and missions available that you could join up to. You might even have ideas for youth group mission trips you’d like to bring before the church. It’s really great to have the opportunity to give something back. To go abroad and introduce others to the wonderful word of God. And this gives you the chance to bring religion to the poorer nations of the world and help enrich people’s lives. Remember Matthew 25:40 ‘Whatever you did for the least of my brothers, you did for me’.

Prayer Groups

As well as the cell groups you form it could also be worth forming prayer groups. There are a lot of tragedies that happen in the world and a lot of things we don’t really understand. It’s difficult to come to terms with these sometimes. But, you also need to make sure you talk to the Lord about these issues. That’s why prayer groups can be so great and so powerful. It’s important to pray about issues and pray for people who you feel need it. This is a wonderful opportunity to really help make a difference in people’s lives through God.

Consider Preaching

Something else that might have taken your fancy is preaching. Now, you don’t necessarily have to do this on the street, or even externally. Preaching within your local congregation is a great way to start. You can learn their ropes, you’ll be more relaxed, and you’ll know what areas of The Word interest people. This is a wonderful way of improving your confidence, and looking deeper into God’s teachings. Many people are nervous about the very idea of preaching. But, you should pray to God and ask him to help guide you and give you the confidence you need.

So you may have just started to develop a strong interest in your faith. Well, now is the time to take that to the next level. If you’re reading this then you’ve probably decided you’d like to deepen your commitment to Christ and the church. There are so many things you can do to help you with this. Speak to the church elders, and see what they can suggest.
