Going to church these days has hardly become a priority for most people; in fact, church attendance has significantly fallen over the past few years. This is something that not only baptist churches can attest but other denominations as well. Yes, it is true that there are more than a handful of reasons why people no longer go to church, but haven’t you pondered on the thought that there also are very good reasons why you should go?
Jesus himself always found a way to go weekly worship.
Learning that Jesus always gave time to be at a place of worship is more than enough reason for you to do the same. What’s even more remarkable is that this commitment began when he was still young. This is unfortunately quite the opposite to how children today view church as many feel that they don’t need to go. Simply put, the fact that our Lord showed value on the importance of going to a place of worship means that we all must follow His lead.
Even early Christians went to weekly worships without question.
The New Testament made mention that the first Christians were committed to gathering every first day of the week, which literally translates to spending Sunday as the day of the Lord. The assembly of people was for good reason as everyone was keen on studying the Word of God and putting themselves in prayer. It’s just difficult to imagine that with all God’s blessings, more and more people are now turning their backs and are no longer honoring Him by visiting church every week.
God has told all of us to go to weekly worship.
God declared to the whole humanity that we all need to go to church to worship and that alone should make you realize how important it is to find your way back to church. You must start understanding that some things are meant to be followed and obeyed simply because they are integral parts of God’s declaration, and that includes worship. Every Christian, including you, should understand that it is our responsibility to obey God and the only way to show that is by going to church to profess our love for Jesus.
Going to church is good for you.
Yes, it’s true that you might find some other things to be more important than going to church, but you also have to realize that there are still six other days to spare. Although it’s quite hard to accept, but there are people out there who does not believe there still is sense in going to church since they couldn’t find a reason to go. If you happen to be one of those people, we recommend that you take a deep breath and figure out why churches exist. God created the first day of each week for people to experience spiritual edification and encouragement. In other words, you must find yourself heading out to church not because you are doing God a favor; you’re doing it as a favor to yourself.
