Why do We Go to Church?

Posted by Matt Postiff March 28, 2023 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Theology 

One of our young people raised this question. Here are a few thoughts from Scripture and related to my own personal life.

1. Because we were made to worship God. God made us so that we cannot be truly satisfied or joyful unless we know Him. See Psalm 95:6.

2. Because "man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord" (Jesus, Matthew 4:4).

3. Because our soul is so important--even more important than our bodily health. Why would you neglect it? "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26).

4. Because we love God and we love being with God's people. If you are really questioning the value of being at your local church, your attitude about church indicates that you love something else.

5. Because we are commanded to not forsake gathering together (Hebrews 10:24-25)

6. For me personally as a pastor, I go because it is my job! Pastor or not, all of the above reasons apply to me and you as well.

Attending church meetings is not waste of time!
