Day 1 - Our Own House, Our Own City
Today's lesson focused on...
Psalm 122:1 I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'
The lesson states "Church is a huge part of a believer's life." This is so true, and I think that it is one of the keys to being able to grow in your spiritual journey. If you do not attend church then you are missing out on a big part of what you need to grow. So why should we attend church? Here are just a couple verses...
Hebrews 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.
1 Thessalonians 4:18 So comfort and encourage each other with these words.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.
James 5:16 Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.
How can we possibly accomplish all of these things if we do not go to church. How can we do all these things for "each other" if we never go and see other believers. We need to go to church, not only to hear the Word of God, but to fellowship and build godly relationships. In doing so we will grow closer to God.
