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. While there are so many different reasons why people no longer go to church, have you ever wondered why it still is of great value to do the opposite?
Jesus made it a point to go to 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 largely in contrast to most children today who need a ton of convincing for them to go to church with their parents. In other words, the Lord taught all of us how important it is to commit to going to our place of worship, so it is our responsibility to follow that.
Early Christians never hesitated in going to weekly worships.
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. People assembled for a great reason, which was to study God’s Word. Considering how early Christians dedicated themselves to church back in the day, it’s painful to see the new generation has no longer the same commitment to go to church even if it really isn’t a burden.
God instructed 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.
It might be true that there are a handful of other things you might see as more important than going to church on a Sunday, but you do have to realize as well that there are six other days of the week where you could do other things you love doing. As much as it pains, some people just don’t go to church anymore because they no longer find a good reason to do so. 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. This means going to church is something that you must do not as a favor to the Lord, but a favor to yourself.
