Why go to church? Going to church is seen as an optional activity on Sundays by a lot of people. There are those who go to church because of tradition. There are many people who claim to be Christians but never go to church. There are any nominal Christians today who still go to church and fill up the pews. But why really should we go to church. Will there be any benefit to you if you go to church regularly? Do we get anything attending church services every Sunday? Below are some of the reasons to go to church and its benefits.
The first reason why we should go to church is that it is commanded by God in the Bible. Forsaking the assembly is something that God forbids in the Bible and so we should obey this command. Sunday is the day of rest for Christians who labor for six days in the world. And this means one day out of seven should be devoted to whole-hearted, undistracted time of worshipping God. God is only to be worshipped because He is our Creator and Redeemer.
What better way to spend the Lord’s day than to hear His Word preached. The reason why many people don’t believe in a God is because they have not really heard what the Bible says. You cannot believe in something that you haven’t heard about. It is only through the preached Word of God that God can make a person believe in Him. In church, we hear the Word of God being preaching week after week, and this is what helps Christians deepen their devotion to the Lord. Hearing the Word of God will help you in your daily walk.
There are more reasons to go to church that just hearing the Word of God preached. Being with fellow Christians is another good reason to go to church. You need fellowship in your life if you want to grow as a Christian. Church gives you an opportunity to worship God together with other believers. When the worship service ends, it is a time for gathering and encouraging one another. You can find help for your troubles when Christians meet together. Your godly brothers and sisters can be a source of great godly advice for your troubled life. Going to church gives you all these benefits. And this is why you should look forward each week to meet your Christian friends to fellowship together and worship the Lord together.
These are just some of the reasons and benefits of going to church but there is definitely a lot more. So if you want to benefit from going to church, then look for a church you and experience the great blessing of hearing the Word of God and fellowshipping with fellow believers.
