When I become a Christian I did not want to go to church.
I thought being with other believers was unnecessary, I was saved now, I am ok I reasoned. I was wrong.
What I discover when I finally ‘went to the house of the Lord’ was something truly wonderful. You see, when we go together with other believers in the church we help each other believe. When we meet and sing songs with one voice we speak the Word of truth to each other again and again. This back and forth between us it’s not only a talk to each other but we pray in agreement to God, which is powerful.
We share the good news, then we become the good news, together.
For us, it’s very difficult to experience God as a Father if we don’t see and have a relationship with our brothers and sisters. We rely on each other to comprehend and mature in Christ. The breaking of the bread and the drinking of the wine reminds us that we share one God, one faith, one baptism, and the Holy Spirit as a Bride. So, we get together we represent Christ to one another. We encourage, we comfort, we reprimand, we love, we give mercy, we say ‘Peace be with you’ in one voice with our saviour.
