    This Is Why You Must Attend Church Today

    Do you know It's a necessity to attend church for your growth as a
    believer ?

    It's surprising to me how many Christians struggle with the idea of Church attendance. Of course, this isn't a new problem. Since the Beginning of Christianity, the early leaders had to challenge this Mindset, saying "Do not give up meeting together, as some are in the
    habit of doing, but encourage one another-- all the more as you see these Day approaching." (Hebrews 10:25)

    A popular Christian catch-phrase, "You don't go to church, you are the church." While I get the sentiment in some ways, this is an unhealthy view, pitting "being the church" and "going to church" against each other. If we are truly "the Church," then we will surely get together with other believers regularly. We cannot "be" the church, if we don't "go" to church. Not fully anyways

    4 POWERFUL REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND CHURCH, AND WHY CHURCH ATTENDANCE CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE:

    1. GOD SAID SO
    God tells us in His Word to "not give up meeting together." (Hebrews 10:25)
    The Bible even goes so far as to call the Church the "Bride of Christ." If you love Jesus, you will love the things that He loves, and there is no one a good man loves more than His bride. The Church is this important to God, so it should be ever-important to us. God didn't call us to gather and worship to burden us, but to bless us. Church attendance can become one of the greatest blessings in you and your family's life!

    2. WORSHIPPING JESUS TOGETHER IS POWERFUL
    Jesus lives inside of us by His Spirit when we believe in Him - this is a profoundly incredible truth! But there is also something biblically powerful about gathering together with other believers to worship. Jesus said, "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them." (Matthew 18:20) So he is not only lives in us by His Spirit, but He is in the "midst" of us when we gather to worship Him.

    3. WE NEED CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY
    All of us long for community and connection with others. God has given us this gift in gathering together for church, and in smaller groups in each other's homes. It fulfills something inside of us to do life with others, encourage each other and be authentically involved in each other's lives. Christian TV, podcasts, books and conferences are wonderful additions to our spiritual lives, but nothing can take the place of consistent Christian community through the local church.

    4. WE GROW MORE TOGETHER THAN ALONE
    It can be messy when we step into each other's lives. We are all human, and no one is perfect. So it requires effort and intentionality and grace from God to do life together, even as believers. Gathering regularly with other believers becomes a refining process
    whereby we help each other, pray for each other and encourage each other to want to follow Christ more wholeheartedly. It is a truly beautiful thing.
    Don't let excuses stand in the way of what you know God is calling you to do. God will strengthen you, and empower you to do what He has Called you to do. I am praying for you -- if you have encountered past wounds from leaders or from church members -- that God will bring healing and grace to you, as you seek to follow Him, and love His
    Church.
