8 Reasons You Need to Be in Church Today

Comments Off on 8 Reasons You Need to Be in Church Today

Whether or not to attend worship services is a spiritual decision you will have to make today (or the Sunday after you read this.) If you think you will not be missed, then you are mistaken. Others are coming because you are. Your voice is needed in song. You need to remember Christ’s life death and resurrection. You need to give. This list goes

The fact is, when you became a Christian you made a commitment. When you identified yourself with your congregation, you made a commitment.

You committed yourself to serve the kingdom in any way that helps it grow. If you need more study on the matter, here are the reasons you need to be in church today:

  • To seek God’s kingdom (Matthew 6:33)
  • To worship God (John 4:24)
  • To edify the other saints (Hebrews 3:13)
  • To sing praises to our God (Colossians 3:16; Ephesians 5:19)
  • To pray (1 Timothy 2:1-8)
  • To partake of the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
  • To give as we have prospered(1 Corinthians 16:1, 2)
  • To study (2 Timothy 2:15).

These are all items that are part of your service to God, but there is a compelling reason you need to go for yourself. Just like a coal loses its glow when it is removed from the fire, your spirit will be quenched when it is removed from the congregation. Just like that coal needs the fire’s heat to continue consuming the fuel, your faith needs God’s word to grow.

See you in church!
