Have you ever wondered why you need to 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 today who don’t go to church but claim they are Christians. And some regularly fill up the pews but are simply Christians by name. But why really should we go to church. And what are its benefits? If you attend church every Sunday, what can you actually get? The reasons to go to church and how it can benefit us will be discussed below.
There is a clear command in the Bible that tells us to go to church. Christians are commanded to join the assembling of Christians for worship. Since God has made 7 days in a week, one day is to be allotted for rest from worldly labors to fully devote to rest in the Lord. So we should devote the Lord’s day to whole-hearted, undistracted time of worshp to God. God is only to be worshipped because He is our Creator and Redeemer.
Another reason or benefit of going to church is that you hear the Word of God preached. The reason why many people don’t believe in a God is because they have not really heard what the Bible says. 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 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.
It is not only learning from the Word of God and knowing God that we go to church. We also go to church to be with fellow Christians. If you really want to grow as a Christian, then fellowship is important. Here in church you can worship God together. After the worship service, you can gather together and spend the time encouraging one another. When Christians meet together, you can find help for your troubles. Your godly brothers and sisters can be a source of great godly advice for your troubled life. You can only have this benefit if you go to church regularly. And this is why meeting your Christian friends to worship the Lord and fellowship together is very important.
There are more reasons and benefits to go to church that what was mentioned above. 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.
