Hello dear! I am very sure you are preparing for today’s service as it is your norm to go to church on Sunday.
But come to think of it, why do you go to church on Sunday?
Many Christians who are regular church goers often find it difficult to point out the importance of being in church on the Sabbath day.
To many, their motive of being in the congregation of the saints on Sunday is to show off their new costumes.
Others visit church on Sunday to display their financial worth and carry out some attention-seeking actions while in church.
As much as I am not criticizing looking good and gorgeous during Sundays services, being in church is more than that.
To this effect, we shall be discussing four concrete reasons why being in church is extremely crucial to believers.
Four reasons why you should genuinely be in church on Sunday
1. To enjoy the presence of God in the midst of the saints of God
Have you ever imagined why the lord—through Apostle Paul— sternly warned us not to “forsake the assembling of ourselves together (Hebrews 10: 25)”?
This is because he knows what you stand to benefits from such congregation.
Don’t forget he said that God is readily available wherever two or more people gathered in his name (Matthew 18:20).
Hence, you will enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit whenever you come to the presence of God with open mind and the readiness to worship the true God.
2. To be spiritually energized to do the things of God
“You shall receive power after which the Holy Spirit has come upon you…”
Enjoying the presence of the Holy Spirit doesn’t only stop in the church.
You will receive more portions of the gifts of the spirit to do the things of the lord, irrespective of the temptations and challenges that might come your way during the week.
3. To explore your potentials and skill for the lord
Are you a gifted singer, a keyboardist, pianist or any form of instrumentalist?
One of the reasons you should be in church on Sunday is to utilize your talents and potentials to glorify the name of the lord who has given you the talent.
However, in most churches across the world, you need to be a part of a unit or department before being permitted to showcase your talent.
This is done to provide orderliness in the house of the lord.
Therefore, it is advisable you find a department or unit that will provide you with the chance to utilize your talents to the glory of the lord.
There are ushering department, choirs and instrumentalists, decorating department, security department and more to choose from.
4. To establish new and beneficial connections
In church, there are diverse numbers of people who are interested in what you do for a living.
You can easily meet with people after service to advertise your products and service to them.
You can easily create a connection that will take your career, life and profession to a whole new level of greatness and achievements.
However, this shouldn’t be your main priority for visiting church on Sundays because it will completely prevent your worship from being acceptable in the presence of God.
As Christians gather to worship the lord this week, endeavor to participate in any church service close to you.
Meanwhile, worship is more than your physical presence. You should ensure you spirit is wide open to communicate with the lord and learn from him too. The lord bless you
