The Good News about Jesus is powerful to change lives. It just needs to be applied to all areas of life. Once God sees that this process is wanted it shows to be siding with His nature. There is a program with a personal involvement of the Holy Spirit. It's a spiritual cleansing program that He wants to enrol everyone on this who has faith in Jesus.
Spiritual friendships and ministry are the two parts of the purpose of how we are made. The ministry video below explains something about this that's deep in God's heart.
'The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You support my lot.
6 The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.
God's Heart is for Small Groups
A core of the relational connection in the church is found in small groups. Just like a gardener removes weeds and establishes fertile land to grow plants, the same can be said what is to happen in these. The right spiritual friends that want to help with the spiritual cleansing process would make it more smooth sailing for success for God's kingdom. There is something also deep in Father God's heart - it's ministry! These groups can fill holes in the heart for this purpose.
It could be the case that you have in your heart already to start a group but have not done anything about it. It's easier than you think. All you need is a common agreement to live with the Lord Jesus in repentance and faith. When these groups follow this pattern it should be life transforming. Be bold and have confidence that this is a deep purpose that God wants to thoroughly bless.
