Why should a man go to church, it's boring isn't it, what purpose?by Joni Lund on 06/28/15
The purpose of going to church is to honor God.
2, reading scripture - the very words which will rebuild your mind, then your life.
3. fellowship with other believers, to learn, to help and encourge each others. We become like the people we spend time with and they like us.
4. To rebuild your mind, hence transforming your life.
5. Set a good example to your children, spouse, family, community.
6. To renew yourself.

WHY HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD VERSES LIP SERVICE OR TAKING UP SPACE IN A PEW?
God is in the business of remaking marred vessels into vessels which bring honor onto God.
Ironicly, those broken people show the GLORY of what God can do in someone's life better than the seemingly perfect individual in this world.
Let God cleanse you.

Read your Bible daily by making it a route so that your life and progress do not fall by the way side scattered amoung the stones and brambles. BUT be prospering fruit on the vine fed on God's word, and a good harvest at harvesting time for the Kingdom of God whom is in Heaven.
Crops when they are ready will be brought into the threshold, through the gate to the King.
We are his lambs, his crops (grain from chaff), His harvest. His vessels.
Vessels which he remakes into a glory for God. Vessels are made of clay, man was formed from clay of the earth in the beginning by God, see Book of Gensis. The Holy Spirit will be your comforter, abid in you (God's temple) when you keep yourself clean. (If you fail to stay clean, start over by repenting(sin no more) and cleaning your house (temple)(restore your mind). Scripture says, The Lord was with God at that time,
If you did not recieve the Holy Spirit at the time of your salvation, have a born again christian pray with you and lay hands on you for such.
Do not be discouraged or mislead, there are people out there whom are ignorant or superstisious even those in the "church". Most are on a different part of the pathway to Heaven then you. And the people whom are not following the Gospels, avoid so they don't corrupt you.
Remember, you are a NEW born, new man, new creature, through Yahshua.
Meaning, don't dwell on your sins so they chain or criple you(prorocol son or daughter), REPENT whole heartedly, then move on returning home to God you Father. STAY and DWELL with Him through Yahshua. It is a lot more restful then constantly picking yourself up off the ground and rebuilding your life from unwise living.
LIVE BY FAITH: this means to living according to the Holy Scriptures, even when it doesn't make sense, feel good, or is not what you want.
Then LET God handle the fall out, details, the providing your pathway.
Learn to be quiet - to hear Him, learn to be wise - advise in Scripture, LEAN - not on your own understanding but on Yahshua. LIVE on the word of God.
And he will fill you with his breath, and put you on the wings of Eagles.
All for his Glory and Praise.
