Why Go To Church?

Different people go to church for different reasons. Unfortunately, the reason we go is not always the reason we should go. The reason we should go to church because Jesus did. He is our example and it was his custom to go to church. Instead, we go because it “feels good”. People go places they want to be. They go there early and stay late. It’s the opposite when they don’t want to be there. They come up with every excuse possible to get there late and leave early. In Scripture, we find a few reasons why we should go to church. First, the church is called out from the world. We do not belong to ourselves! We are God’s property so we don’t have the right to say whether we want to go to church or not. Second, the church is also the body of Christ. When you miss church and you are part of the body, you are missed. You are important to the body of Christ. It knows when you are missing. Third, your strength and help comes from the house of the Lord which is why the devil tries to keep you from coming. God gives you exactly what you need at church but if you miss church, you miss your blessing. Finally, He works on us in the church. He shows us ourselves, humbles us and sharpens us. The thing about church is that you are going to get what you are looking for out of it. So if you come with a bad attitude, you won’t get much. When you come with an spirit of thanksgiving and expectancy, you will get just that.

Where is your passion? What get’s you excited? What makes you FEEL GOOD?2nd Samuel 13 tells the story of Amnon and Tamar. Amon fell for his brother, Absalom’s, sister, Tamar. Amnon made himself sick and asked for Tamar to serve him by making cakes for him to eat. He then asked her to lay with him. She denied him so he forced her to have sex with him. After they laid together, he hated her more than he ever loved her and sent her away. Sin will take your further than you want to go, make you stay longer than you want to stay and make you do things you will always regret. We chase what makes us FEEL good but some of the things that make you feel good can and will kill you. Do you know what the difference is between a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship and a husband/wife relationship? God is not looking for a girlfriend. He doesn’t want us to be infatuated with Him. He wants us to be in love with Him. He wants us to love Him even when we don’t FEEL like it. There are three things that can take us down in life; the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. If you can get victory over those, you can have it all! But, you can only do that with the help of the Holy Ghost!
