We live in a world full of so many challenges and temptations that make our lives bitter on a daily basis. It is, therefore, very important for every person to understand and realize the will of God in his or her life. It is the early time we all get closer to God so that He can also abide in us and deliver us from our bondage. There are so many churches around the world that have dedicated to helping people get closer to God and understand Him more. The more we go to church, the more we get nourished spiritually and lead happier lives. It is in the church that you will also be taught the word of God. Reading the bible can benefit you in so many ways. My key subject of discussion in this article is to help the reader understand some of the reasons why it is very vital to go to church and read the Word of God.
The first benefit of reading the bible and going to church is increasing our understanding of God. Reading the word of God and going to church will help you know more about God’s purpose in your life. Our relationship and connections with God need to be nourished every time. The more we make the bible and church our close friends, the more we get connected with God. Our trust and faith are greatly elevated. Reading the Word of God will help you get into a place of worship, thus easily understanding the message of God. The other reason why reading the bible is important is that it helps us understand the instructions of God. The instructions of God for our lives, how we should treat others and react in every situation, whether good or bad, are found in His word. The book of Proverbs 16:20:20 encourages us to heed to the instructions of God and trust Him so that we can enjoy His blessings. The other reason why you should read the word of God and go to church often is to get led into salvation. Salvation is a challenging journey. It is a journey that needs one to be strong throughout. The only way of overcoming challenges and temptations is by reading the word of God on a daily basis. The only way we are saved is by putting our hope in Him and trusting His ways even when we cannot see Him. As a Christian, I believe in walking with God even when He is silent.
Reading the Word of God reminds me that I am not only His servant but also His son. Galatians 4:7 encourages me by telling me that we who trust in God are not only His servants but also His sons, therefore, the heirs or inheritors of His kingdom. Going to church and reading the scripture will also give you freedom. Reading the word of God releases all our chains and lifts our burdens. Whenever I read the word of God, my soul and spirit gets strengthened, uplifted and ends up with joy.
