IT IS COMMANDED. In Hebrews 10:25 the Bible says, “Not forsaking the assembling of yourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more as you see the day approaching.”
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO THE GROWTH OF THE CHURCH. The church is the body of Christ on earth. It sends the gospel to the world. It is the home and haven for the saved. It represents the value of Christ’s blood. It cannot grow and thrive if I do not attend regularly.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO MY OWN SPIRITUAL LIFE AND GROWTH. When I was saved, the Lord added me to the church. Acts 2:47. It is the environment where He wants me to be. My growth as a branch depends upon a constant and continuous connection. John 15:1-4.
IT IS HOW I GIVE GLORY TO GOD. “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians 3:21.
