WHY GO TO CHURCH?

 

     Is it a waste of time?  A church-goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.  “I’ve gone for thirty years now,” he wrote, and for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them.  So, I think I’m wasting my time and preachers are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”

 

     This started a controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:  “I’ve been married for thirty years now.  In that time my wife has cooked 32,000 meals.  But for the life of me I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.  But I do know this”  they all nourished me and gave me the strength to do my work.  If my wife had not cooked these meals, I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”

 

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified”  Acts 20:32.

 

 

 

Weighed….Found wanting!!

 

     Of what real value is your soul?  Weigh it against all treasures, pleasures, honors, position, fame, prestige, popularity and happiness.  Which is of more value?  Where do you place your priorities in life?  Jesus set forth the true value of the soul in that great question:  “For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”  Mark 8:36-37

     His divine evaluation is that your soul outweighs the whole world and everything in it!!
