Why do People go to church?
Today I want to talk to you about why people go to church, what the Bible says about it, and why it is very important to meet at a local church so you can pray, and have family, friends, and loved ones to support you, lift you up, and sometimes even help you finically.
17And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 18Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. 23Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
What this is saying is if people don’t want to hear you or take your words imporant then tell it to the church and they will pray about it and give you advice through the Bible and personal experiences, but if you don’t want to hear the church or don’t go to church you will be known as a heathen man someone who doesn’t belong to a church. The importance to belonging to a church is SO important because when two or more are talking about God he is there to help you and guide you and bring you salvation and everlasting life. It is also saying to forgive the people you love even if they say bad things to you seventy times. We are all only human pray for them and love them no matter what.
12 Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that [is] within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:
12 Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that [is] within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law: 13 And [that] their children, which have not known [any thing], may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
What this is saying is People need to gather together, meet at church with men, women, child and strangers who can lift them up, get them to repent and live with our lord and savior Jesus Christ. We need to learn about God’s words and observe Gods word.
