Hebrews 10:25 says” 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.
This very topic has so much controversy to it because many will say I don’t have to go to church in order to worship God. A statement like that is what I call “justifying” we will justify anything we want when we know we are wrong. When you read this verse in Hebrews where does it says that “God wants you to not go to church? You will not find one scripture that says Jesus wants you to stay away from church.
The apostles taught the people who are Christians to attend church for the encouragement of others. We are all one body with many members if one member of the body hurt we all hurt and that is why we come together to uplift and pray and encourage each other while praising God and giving Him glory for His Son Jesus for our Salvation.
When we stay away from church the enemy begins to torches you and I, he loves this because we have given him an open back door for him to enter our home. And it will be only a matter of time when we will begin to fall away from the teachings of Christ.
I don’t know about you but when I have been beat down all week fighting the enemy going into the house of the Lord does something for me spiritually. I become a brand new person it’s that refreshing rain from God pouring all over me. Giving me strength to continue the race. My job is never to convince you about Jesus my job is to share the gospel with you and to bring you to Christ. It’s your heart relationship with Jesus Christ that will determine what you will do for Him!
I look at it like this, All of what God done for me by sending His Son to die for me a sinner who truly deserves hell, but He came to give me life, I owe it to Him to come into His house! See I make error just like you and everyone else does, but one thing I have found to be truth and I live and breathe it and that is “when no one else was there for me Jesus never stopped caring for me” and so that is why I say He is my everything!
There is no “PERFECT CHURCH” folks the church is made up of people like you and me we all make mistakes and we don’t always agree with each other, sometimes our feelings get hurt by others but that is not a reason to stay out of the house of God. David said “I was glad when they said to me, “let us go into the house of the Lord.”
Let me ask you this, if someone on your job offended you would you quit your job? Not everyone in the church is against you. Maybe it’s time that you take a deeper look on the inside of you. For that is where it all begins.
