Why Go To Church?
Someone asked why do we go to church all the time? This question asks ‘what happens when we worship and why is it wrong to skip worship'.
What Does The Bible Say?
Hebrews 10:19-25 says... "Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 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."
From this scripture, we learn:
•1. When Christians worship, we actually approach God. Words like "enter the sanctuary" and "draw near" illustrate this truth.
•2. When Christians worship, we acknowledge and celebrate the truth of our salvation.
•3. When Christians worship, we proclaim the faithful love of God.
•4. When Christians worship, we encourage other Christians to "stir one another up to love and good works".
•5. When Christians worship, not everyone attends (verse 25) but they should.
•6. When Christians worship, we should all be present and encouraging one another.
There will be a day (THE DAY) when all will meet the Lord. Attending on the Lord's day qualifies you for the DAY OF THE LORD.
