Why Go To Church?
Ever ask yourself "why do I bother to go to church" or if you are not a church goer have you ever wondered why folks do go to church regularly?
My good friend and fellow classmate, John Jones, from a time back when such things were not asked or discussed because going to church was just as natural as going to work, posted this on his Face Book page and I "borrowed" it from him.
It certainly does pose a question for many. What do you think?
Why Go To Church
Some Christians have a hard time regularly attending church for a variety of reasons, but with the right pastor and the right place that makes you comfortable, your relationship with God will benefit immensely. Here's a great story about the importance of church :)
A churchgoer wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church ever...y Sunday. I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me I can't remember a single one of them. So I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor.
It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: "I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me those meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"
Faith sees the invisible, Believes the incredible and Receives the impossible.
Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment.
