Have you ever wondered why you need to go to church. There are many people today who don’t go to church. It is a family tradition that makes many people go to church. 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 what is the real reason for going to church? Are there benefits of going to church? What can we get attending church services Sunday after Sunday? The discussion below will focus on why we should go to church and its many benefits.
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. And we should worship God because He is our Creator and Redeemer.
We should go to church because in church preaching you get to hear the Word of God or teachings from the Bible. And this is why many don’t believe in God because they have never really heard the Word of God. 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 by hearing the Word of God that God helps a person to believe in Him. True Christians can also deepen their devotion to God when they hear the Word preached regularly. You can get help in your daily life listening to the Word of God preached.
It is not only learning from the Word of God and knowing God that we go to church. You also go to church to be with other Christians. If you really want to grow as a Christian, then fellowship is important. You get to worship God with your brethren when you go to church. When the worship service ends, it is a time for gathering and encouraging one another. You can find help for your troubles when Christians meet together. Your godly brothers and sisters can be a source of great godly advice for your troubled life. Going to church gives you all these benefits. And this is why meeting your Christian friends to worship the Lord and fellowship together is very important.
These are just some of the reasons and benefits of going to church but there is definitely a lot more. If you are a believer in God, then it is important to go and worship God with other believers and this can help refresh your soul each week.
