Reasons for Going

Bill Brinkworth

“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking theassembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Heb. 10:24

There are two categories of reasons for people’s attending church: spiritual and unspiritual reasons.  Here are some reasons for attendance thatfall under those divisions:

Spiritual: Reasons that are in accordance with God’s Word, and help one be obedient to His commandments.


Unspiritual: Reasons that feel good and seem logical to the unspiritual part of us, our flesh, but are not in accordance to what the Word of God teaches.


Are your reasons for attending church “spiritual” or “unspiritual”?
