Studying & Praying Together

Studying Together at MVBC.

Studying Together

The Bible is a living Book and the inspired Word of God. It is God’s written Instruction Book to mankind. It answers every important question in life. It explains how to live—and reveals the road to salvation.

Why study the Bible? The apostle Paul in II Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”


Paul tells us that proper Bible study leads to approval from God. The same verse also speaks of other benefits. First, as workmen, we need not be ashamed—if we study God’s Word. Instead, studying becomes fulfilling and satisfying. You have done what God expects you to do—an acceptable type of self-approval.

Rightly dividing the Word of Truth—knowing the Bible, inside and out—takes a lifetime. God’s Holy Spirit opens one’s mind to this spiritual understanding (Psa. 119:18; John 16:13). True biblical knowledge and understanding come from diligent effort and God’s Spirit working in you.

God expects us to familiarize ourselves with His Word. Only by fully appreciating it will we act on it. Christ said, “…It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4, quoted from Deut. 8:3).

At Meadow View, we set some time aside every Thursday evening at 7.00pm to explore God's Word in depth.

Praying Together.

 Praying Together

Prayer is one of the most important Christian activities. Through prayer one maintains an intimate walk with the Lord and lays the foundation for success in other spiritual activities. It also ensures victory in the struggle against Satan as you commit yourself in faith to the protection and care of the Great Victor, Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul understood that we are in a war, but he said, "We do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God. And we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." (2Cor. 10:3-5)

A special blessing rests upon prayer meetings: “.... For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:19-20).

Following the bible study, we join together in prayers of adoration, confession and petition.
