We know attending church regularly can be challenging for some. But did you know there are quite a few benefits when you do? Here are five benefits you’ll receive by attending church regularly!
It Connects Us with God
One of the wonderful benefits of attending church regularly is the opportunity to connect with God. Maybe this seems obvious, but having a physical space to connect and draw closer to God is special. Entering a house of worship, we’re instantly elevated to a state where we’re opening ourselves up to Him and trying to understand his message. Even the simple act of walking in the doors brings you closer. And when we connect with God, He gives us His good gifts of forgiveness and love.
It Helps Us Find Deeper Meaning in Our Lives
During dark moments, there may be times in your life when you wonder, “what’s the point?” The world can be a sad place. And when we feel despair, sorrow, stress, and frustration, it’s easy to lose sight of the greater plan and purpose that’s out there. We might even feel alone and isolated from God. There is no shame in this; it happens.
But when we go to church, we’re given a greater sense of meaning and purpose. We not only see the history of what led us to this point but the promise that lies in our future even beyond this world. Attending church regularly can help you stay on track and give you reasons to keep the faith.
It Allows Us to Feel Peace
Week after week, we go through the motions of life and the chaos of every day. If you long for peace and quiet, church is a wonderful space to gain that. When we attend church, we’re transported to a place of worship and tranquility. Attending church regularly can help us revisit this peaceful state regularly. It gives us a space to pray as well as respite from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives.
It Strengthens Spiritually
When we attend church regularly, we become better worshippers. It helps us learn to focus more on God and less on ourselves. When we attend services, we receive spiritual nourishment from the Lord. This nourishment strengthens us spiritually and helps us grow in our faith.
It Fosters a Sense of Community
Church is not something we do individually, but something to be done with others. When we go to church, we encourage each other in faith and build lasting friendships. If you’re looking for a community or just want to make some friends, this is the place to do it!
