I remember while growing up my mom was quite strict about attending church on Sundays. The truth is at that time I thought she was just being a pain and I really rather would have preferred to stay in bed. Now as an adult I see how the pressures of daily life can sometimes become overwhelming and how being closer to God and in church on Sundays can have a positive impact on my life. It may seem easier to ignore the alarm and just laze about the house on Sunday but what good is that for your soul? Here are a few reasons why you should go to church this Sunday.
The Bible indicates we should go
According to various scriptures we should visit the house of God and show our discipleship. If we really want to get as close as possible to God we would need to be in church amongst other believers, worshiping, shouldn’t we? Click here for scriptures about going to church.
It is soul food
Going to church, listening to the sermon and worshipping is good for the soul especially during troubled times. This should not exclude happy times however. Whether you go for guidance during difficult situations or just to give thanks make the effort.
Encourage your friends in Christ
By going to church you will encourage your fellow Christians to also take the time on a Sunday to go to church. Christianity and worship is contagious, in a good way, so let others know that you will be attending a service and see if they join you.
Feel less guilty
I feel guilty every single time I miss church on a Sunday. I usually tell my husband to get his men’s grooming done quickly while I put on my Sunday best when the guilt gets too much. By attending church regularly you are doing something incredibly important for your spiritual life and eliminating guilt.
Worship with other likeminded individuals
It is great to know that you are surrounded by other individuals that share your religion and beliefs. It also makes your time of worship special. You get the opportunity to feel like you are part of something amazing.
Start your week with great focus and motivation
Each and every single time I go to church on a Sunday I am motivated and lighthearted about the coming week. It helps me to stay focus and in a calm and relaxed manner tackle every challenge that I might have to face. I just feel ready and in good hands after attending a service on Sunday.

Your family will join you and love you for going
Getting your family out of bed might prove to be a challenge but after and enlightened and Christ-filled service they will love you for taking them with. Good traditional family values should include going to church together and sharing a special moment with our God and our fellow brothers and sisters.
