Why Go To Church?

Why go to churchI’ve had the privilege of traveling to various countries over the years as well as visiting many of the states in our great country. I’ve noticed over the years and also heard, on the news, about the continuing decline in church attendance worldwide. I believe this is one of the key reasons our worldwide society is in such horrible condition. Many people seem to see no value in attending church or worshiping God.

Why do we go to Church?

If you’re spiritually alive, you’re going to love this?
If you’re spiritually dead, you won’t want to read it.
If you’re spiritually curious, there is still hope!

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 priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons.”

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. But I do know this: They 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”

I’ve heard it said: “When you are down to nothing, God is up to something!” Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible.

One of our College Core Values is: “Honor God”. I honor God and gain strength from attending church weekly and I thank him for my physical and spiritual nourishment.
