Why Come To Church?
Some professing Christians never darken the door of a church building to assemble with God’s people. Others like to come in from time to time, especially at holidays. Many will be there on Sunday if nothing else gets in the way and many will come every time the doors are open. In whatever category you find yourself please ask, “Why am I here? And, what am I doing here? Am I here to fulfill the will of God in this matter?”
Are You Going To Church?
Just after 9-11 the roads were crowded on Sunday morning and people were filing into church buildings but that didn’t last long. People don’t have time, they are too tired, too sick, there are too many hypocrites… I’ve heard all the excuses.
I suppose that assembling for worship could be made illegal tomorrow and many wouldn’t even know it until Christmas or perhaps next Easter when they decide to make an appearance at church. Others will find some way to get to church on Sunday morning but don’t seem to really care if they make the other services of the church.
If that’s you, I hope that you will seriously reconsider this whole matter of going to church.
