Why Go To Church?

Let us not give up meeting together, as some
are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage
one another – and all the more as you see the
Day approaching. ( Hebrews 10:25 )

Now I know that you may be asked by some, “Why Go
To Church?” So………..
Why Go To Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and
complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.
“I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have
heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I
can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my
time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”

This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor”
column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks
until someone wrote this clincher: “I’ve been married for 30 years
now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But,
for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one
of those meals.

However I do know this… They all nourished me and gave me
the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me
these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would
be spiritually dead today!” Thank God for our physical and our
spiritual nourishment! So; come, let us worship
and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our
Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people
of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand.
Amen! ( Psalm 95:6-7 )

I’ll see you in Church Today my friend! You will find me in
the front row, if not in person, then in spirit!
