    8 Reasons Church is for You 

    MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

    There are many benefits of attending church, but I want to highlight just a few for those of you who are wondering what the big deal about church is.

    1. You get to interact with God
    2. You get to be around other believers (iron sharpens iron -other believers can help bring out the godliness in you)
    3. You get a message from God and more of His will is revealed to you
    4. You are prepared for future events -good and bad
    5. Jesus did it. Jesus always gathered with other believers even as a kid he was with the elders. He primarily ministered to groups of people.
    6. Paul recommends it. During Paul’s ministry some people became arrogant and stopped associating with other believers.
    7. Promote spiritual growth
    8. Helps deter “backsliding”

    If you attend church and Bible study regularly, there is nothing Satan can bring your way that you won’t be already prepared for.

    What future events has church prepared me for personally?

    1. The economic downfall in 2008 (I knew about it years before via my pastor and him being sensitive to God’s Spirit).
    2. Healthy Sex Life
    3. Happy, Fun Marriage
    4. Depression
    5. Job Loss
    6. On several occasions my financial blessings were located at church (meaning people within the church met my need financially)

    Going to church and paying attention to the message and God’s Spirit (the Holy Spirit) while in service will not only help you be prepared for future crisis, but avoid future crisis and do things the right way the first time.

    Straight from the A…..theist! 

    I’m sure we all know people who are not only unsaved, but are anti-God, anti-Christian, can’t stand the Word, and can’t stand you! Well, here’s a testimony of a man in Birmingham, AL like that. His name is Brian. Actually, he’s just been born again, so he’s not like that anymore. He gives good insight as to why non believers respond the way they do to Christians. I love hearing his testimony because it let’s me know that even my peers who currently despise God, can be undone through God’s Love. Notice, I didn’t say God’s rage, anger, or wrath. It’s through His love that He chases us down and draws us near. Listen to his pre-christian and post-christian experience here: Brian Noble’s Testimony from Bham AL

    Maybe you know someone like Brian, or you are like that yourself, either way, God can soften all hearts towards Him. In a book of the Bible named Ezekiel, God takes literal dry bones from a valley and breathes life into them in response to a prophet praying for them. Maybe you have some dry bones in your family or you are dry bones yourself. Well, guess what. Even if you hate God, with your permission, He will take your dry bones and give life to them. He will take your heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh. So, the next time you’re around some dry bones, just say, “I believe even these bones can live!”

    Remember, no one is a lost cause. And if you know someone who is, Jesus died for them too.

    How did you feel about God before getting saved? If you’re not saved, how can you relate to Brian?
