When you lead such a busy life, finding time to attend church on the weekend can seem more like an obligation than anything else. While Christian church services may take time away from your weekend, there are several reasons why doing so is a beneficial investment in yourself and your faith:
- We need community. Everyone longs to feel like they belong to a community and to connect with others, not just sparingly, but on a regular basis. Christian church services provide the opportunity to feel like you belong and to bond with others who share your beliefs and values.
- We grow more together than by ourselves. Gathering together with other believers every week is an excellent way to follow Christ more wholeheartedly. When you attend church, you are presented with opportunities to help others, pray for others, and learn more about what being a Christian is all about firsthand.
- Worshipping with others is powerful. There is something powerful about gathering with other believers to worship God. If you are struggling with your beliefs, attending Christian church services can help you reignite your belief system and move forward with steadfastness.
We have been told to attend church. In Hebrews 10:25, God says to “not give up meeting together.” Additionally, church worship is important to God, so it should also be important to you. Remember, God did not ask you to worship with others to burden you, but to bless you.
