Why should I go to Church?
1. Because Christ said to: If we had no other reason
for attending church, this alone would be sufficient. If we are christians,
our love and loyalty to God should prompt us to obey whenever he
speaks. The Bible which is God’s word , tells us in Heb. 10:25, ” Not
forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is…”
It is Not True that you can be just as good a christian without going to
church. Failure to attend church (unless providently hindered) is an
absolute refusal to obey Christ.
2. Church attendance was practiced by
the apostles and early christians: If we have the
same kind of christianity that the new testament saints had, we will go to
church. One cannot read the Bible, especially the book of Acts and the
epistles without seeing the importance of the church.
3. Church attendance shows whose side
we are on: There is a very real warfare being waged between the
forces of truth and unrighteousness. Every man takes a side, either for or
against Christ. Church attendance is one way whereby we can show where
our allegiance is.
4. Church attendance provides us with
spiritual food: Just as the body needs food, so also the spiritual
man needs food. One of the places where we can get our spiritual food is at
the House of God. Paul told the elders of the church at Ephesus to ” feed the
church of God…” Acts 20:28. We have so many anemic christians because
they have starved themselves by failing to feast on spiritual things.
Remember: Your profession of faith benefits no one unless you
demonstrate your love for Christ and His word, in the way that you live.
Make church attendance a regular part of your spiritual life.
