Jesus Christ came to die for our sins and it is with this we shouldn’t let him down by not going to church but rather wholeheartedly allocate a precious time to serve him with all our cherished resources.
The joy of going to the house of the lord, Psalm 122, I was glad when they said unto me let us go into the house of the lord.
What would be more fun than dedicating your time to serve your creator?
When I was growing up, my grandmother went to church every week. It was a part of our family’s culture and a value I still follow today.
But in today’s day and age with sports activities and working on weekends, culture has made attending church once a month the new norm.
It is easy to miss church if you feel you don’t fit or feel like no one would miss you if you were gone. Church has improved my life in so many ways; I rarely miss a Sunday.
On this note i would like to share with you the 6 most important reasons why you should always go to church on Sundays and I pray by the time i’m done you would be touched and completely honor Sundays to serve God.
1. So You Can Learn the Word
I admit, I don’t read my Bible as often as I should, and I don’t take the time to study the Word through concordances and other Bible study tools on a regular basis.
But when I go to church on Sunday, I get the opportunity to hear the Word preached in ways that help me understand it better and in unique ways I may not have seen myself if I was studying it on my own.
2. So you will have the opportunity to worship God.
Most of us hardly make time to worship God because of work and sometimes activities we consider to be very crucial and role playing in our lives. But when we go to church we are able to worship God with the available time given since its the main purpose for being there.
3. So You Can Enjoy Community
One of the reasons why I love my church is for the community I receive. There is a reason why Scripture refers to members of churches as “brothers and sisters.”
Church is not just a place to go to on Sundays, but rather a gathering of people who have committed to walking their spiritual journeys interdependently rather than independently.
Some of the people I call my dearest friends are those I have met within the church and have had the pleasure of serving alongside.
4. So You Can Use Your Gifts
God has gifted each one of us not only with natural talents, like singing or playing an instrument, but also with spiritual gifts, that when used, build up the church body in unique ways.
If you still don’t know what they are, find someone who can affirm the gifts they see in you. Sometimes others can see what we have trouble seeing in ourselves.
Once you have confirmed those gifts, talk to a pastor or ministry head and see where you might best be suited to use those gifts. Maybe it is an existing ministry, or maybe your church is missing an important ministry that you can create yourself! The possibilities are endless.
5. So You Can Discover Your Purpose
6. So You Can Find Connection
I have met many people not only during my time in ministry but also my time being a Christian. Some people are exactly like me while others are the complete opposite.
I get the chance to meet and connect with people I wouldn’t have met otherwise if it were not for being a regular church attender.
Being in relationship with people who are the opposite of me can be frustrating at times but it helps me work on making me a better person because of those relationships.
In either scenario, I connect with people in a unique way and discover things about myself I would have never had the opportunity to do otherwise.
Get in the habit of going to church regularly. The positives outweigh the negatives and you never know what opportunity God may present you with because of your attendance.
I hope this was biblically informing and will go to church on Sundays. Thanks
