Why Go to Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of the newspaper and complained that
it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he
wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the
life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my
time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”
This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column, much to
the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this
clincher:
“I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 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 I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I
would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for
nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”
“But we request of you brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor
among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, and
that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace
with one another.” 1 Thessalonians 5:12,13.
Do you appreciate, esteem very highly in love, and live in peace with your
pastor?
