Why I attend church.

NOTE that I said ‘I’ and not why ‘you’ should attend church. I am not here to preach about why one should attend church. This is a reflection post of my churchgoing life.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25

Happy Sabbath!

Church is an essential part of my spiritualย life. When I hadย stopped attending, my life took a nose dive because I was missing out on the spiritual part of it although I was praying constantly. I talked about reattending church last year in a post last month and how vital it is now for my well being. I am fascinated by Jesus Christ and I strive to be like Him every day and He set an example by going to the synagogues and preaching on the Sabbath (Mark 6:2; Luke 4:16; Luke 6:6; Luke 13:10).

I attend church because…

* I get to pay my tithes.

* I get to be spiritually rejuvenated.

* I get to mix and mingle with like-minded sisters and brothers, my second family.

* It helps me to focus on His Word and connect with Him. โค

* It fills my heart and soul with joy and song.

* To hear others’ testimonies.

* It is God’s dwelling place, therefore it is my home.

But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling forever.

King Solomon

2 Chronicles 6:2

* I get to talk to God’s representative (pastor) if I need guidance or prayers.

* I get a chance to reflect on gratitude.ย 

* I am taught forgiveness.

* I have the opportunity to worship God.

* I have a better understanding of the Bible.

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Hebrews 4:10

Thank you, God, for reintroducing church into my spiritual life for I am certainly reaping the benefits.
