I alway wonder why, on any given Sunday, why any of us are going to church. Before I get into why I am going to church today, let me share why I might have gone in the past.
Because my mom and dad made me.
Because I am supposed to go.
Because God wants me there
To teach Sunday school.
To make sure that I am seen and I don’t fall out of the thoughts of everyone.
Because the preacher will see me.
Because I’m a deacon
I’m sure that I could keep going. The problem with this list is that I honestly don’t think any of them are the right reason to attend church services. It also doesn’t contain the reason I go today.
So, why do I attend church on any given Sunday? I think the picture of the poster contains the answer.
Life is a contact sport. Going to church is an opportunity to worship and contact God while others are worshipping and contacting God. It’s an opportunity to do in a corporate setting what I should be doing individually on a daily basis. It’s easy to take my eyes off of this and come up with any other reason for going to church.
I go to church on any given Sunday so that I can worship with my brothers and sisters in Christ.
I go to church because I want to .
So, why are you going to church any given Sunday?
