This is why you should change your church and be unapologetic about it.
“I am glad when they say let us go into the house of the lord. I was glad when they said unto me, let us go into the house of the lord” – Psalm 122.
The Psalmist says, “ I am glad when they say let us go into the house of the lord” – are you? This is the question you should ask yourself as you settle in to read this.
It’s question time. How is your spiritual life, burning or barely alive? How’s bible study? Lastly and very important, how is church attendance, once in a month…when there is a special program or when your flatmate drags you to church?
If you did not answer positively to these questions, then you should read this. In a recent article, bad habits, you should let go of this year 2020, I said this is the year you should take your spiritual growth with seriousness. We are spiritual beings – know this or not – and the spiritual affects the physical a great deal. This is the reason why your spiritual growth should be a priority, alongside your grind or whatever you have going on for you.
Spiritual growth means gaining deeper ground as a Christian – getting more intimate with God. Moving from babyhood to adolescence, and then adults and elders in your spirituality. It’s the same as physical, emotional and mental growth. Most people develop in these areas but neglect the spiritual.
Key things to achieve spiritual growth include
Bible study(you have to read the word)
Church attendance – a lot of people argue that church attendance is not really important for a Christian but what I do have to say about this is the bible verse that says, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day. – Heb 10:25.”
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty – Psalm 91”.
The “secret place” is the place of prayer. You have to attach to your source through prayer. When you fellowship with God in prayer, it brings clarity, it brings confidence, and it brings peace. It’s on the prayer altar you get transparency on the plan and vision for your life.
Paul’s instruction, brethren do not neglect the fellowship of the brethren, was for all our sakes. Not because he wants you to fill up the church and warm the benches but because you need to refuel before you go back home and face the realities of life.
Your church is for encouragement, nourishment, as a second home – a place of rest – and most importantly, a place where you can get a word for any situation you find yourself – direction.
