I hear this from a lot of people and I myself occasionally wonder if I might be better off studying for a test than going to church on sunday, but what’s the real point of going to church? Church, in its most basic sense according to scripture, is merely a place where people come to worship God.
It’s not about the building, the money, or even the pastor, its about the people. So church really is the body of people who come to worship God, that’s it. When I go to church I not only get encouraged by others but I also go to hear God speak to me.
Folks, if your a believer or claim to be a believer than you should ‘want’ to go to church. You may not ALWAYS want to go, but if you truly believe in God than you will want to go worship and hear your creator. I’ve always wondered, how is it that people profess to be christians and yet don’t go to church? They claim that they will worship at home but let’s be honest, you never do. Even when I missed church early on as a christian, I would say I would read scripture or listen to christian music but I just played video games or watched football.
The truth is, if you truly believe in God, the God of the bible, than your actions will show it. You’ll go to church not only because God’s word calls us too, but you’ll do it because you long to be with our everlasting creator. Another thing that I hear is that church is for weak people or really evil people. Really? The truth is we’re all weak and we’re all sinners without God and the number one sign that your pride has taken over this idea is when you think you don’t really need God at all.
For many non-believers, they think how would my life be any different if I turned to God when I see other christians doing the same thing I’m doing? We’re all sinners, we all make mistakes, but I can assure you that walking with God will transform your life. Stop listening to what the world is telling you and see for yourself.
Generally speaking, those who often judge are those who never tried to truly seek it. If you seek a relationship with God he promises to draw near to you. So go to church, let down your walls and your previous ideas about church and God, and seek him with all your heart….You just might be surprised at what happens.
