Why go to church? There are many people today who don’t go to church. And many still go to church as a matter of routine. There are many people who claim to be Christians but never go to church. And some regularly fill up the pews but are simply Christians by name. But what is the real reason for going to church? Will there be any benefit to you if you go to church regularly? Do we get anything attending church services every Sunday? The discussion below will focus on why we should go to church and its many benefits.
God tells us in the Bible that we should go to church. As the verse in Hebrews says, Christians should not forsake the assembling of themselves together for the purpose of worshipping God. In a day of 7, God commands one day to be used for resting from out earthly labors and fully devoting to worshipping God. 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.
We should go to church because in church preaching you get to hear the Word of God or teachings from the Bible. It is important that people hear the Word of God in order for them to believe in Him. If you don’t know that is in the Word of God, the Bible, then no wonder you don’t believe in Him. It is only by hearing the Word of God that God helps a person to 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. If you keep on listening to the Word of God, then you will get a lot of help for your daily life.
There are many other reasons we need to go to church aside from hearing the Word of God. We also go to church to be with fellow Christians. You need fellowship in your life if you want to grow as a Christian. Here in church you can worship God together. After the worship service, you can gather together and spend the time encouraging one another. You can find help for your troubles when Christians meet together. There are many godly brothers and sisters in the faith who can give you godly advice. You can only have this benefit if you go to church regularly. You should desire to be with your Christian friends to worship and fellowship together each Sunday so that you can receive all the blessings that come with it.
There are more reasons and benefits to go to church that what was mentioned above. If you are a believer in God, then it is important to go and worship God with other believers and this can help refresh your soul each week.
