Six Wrong Reasons For Attending Church Empty Six Wrong Reasons For Attending Church

Post by Adminkunlex on Sun Oct 27, 2019 2:32 pm

We do things with different motives. It may be with
good or ulterior motive. While some people go to
church purposely to pray and hear God’s Word. Some
people attend Church with unscriptural reasons.
In this article, I will highlight various wrong reasons
why people attend church. And I’m believing God that
they will change after reading this piece.
Also, every minister of the gospel must bear in mind
that as they stand on the pulpit to minister.
It is not everyone that has come to receive blessings
from the Lord. People come to God’s gathering for
different reasons.
This article is written due to my few years of practical
involvement in pastoral work. Being a young pastor, I
have experienced a lot of things as regards Church
members.
You may find it hard to believe this; Do you know
there are some members who will come to your
fellowship just to make you happy as a pastor?
Maybe you’ve been inviting them for a long time. So,
they will just decide within themselves and say that;
“Let me make this man happy today by attending
Church.”
Honestly, this is not supposed to be. There are better
reasons for coming to God’s Presence.
This and many other reasons are highlighted below.
THE REASONS ARE LISTED BELOW:
• In Church To Attack The Minister Of God
Matthew 26:21
[21]And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you,
that one of you shall betray me.
Among the disciples, Judas was there seeking an
opportunity to hand Jesus over to the Chief Priest
( Matthew 26:16).
So, there are people who attend meetings basically
to harm the man of God spiritually or physically.
There are still more Judases in Church of Christ today.
Bear in mind that there are agents of darkness
seeking every means
to harm you as you minister.
These people will pretend as if they are there to help
the ministry whereas, they have come to wound the
pastor and wreck his ministry.
They will attend virtually all the church programmes,
pretending to be fervent but they have hidden
agenda they want to execute.
May they not have their way into your life in Jesus
name.
Click To Read: Five Things That God’s Anointing
Cannot Do
• In Church To Get Connected
Acts 8:18
[18]And when Simon saw that through laying on of
the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he
offered them money.
Simon the sorcerer attended the meeting where
Apostle Peter ministered.
But he had one thought in mind. He wanted to buy
God’s power that God had given Peter.
In other words, we can infer that he attended that
meeting for connection into the place of power in a
wrong way.
Truthfully, some people go to church in order to get
connected to people in high position.
They want those people to see them. These people
hardly listen to sermon and they are less concerned
about ministrations.
There are still more people today who attend your
meetings in order to see one billionaire who will help
them get a job. This reason is not right.
• Only To Overcome Challenges
They are inconsistent. Hardly can they join any group
in Church. They are not committed in any way. As
they will only show up only when things have gone
wrong in their lives.
Believers like this see Church as a place one need to
attend in the time of trouble.
For instance, If they are in need of money and you
give them money. They won’t come to the place of
worship again until they exhaust that money. Are you
not like these people?
Why You Still Need To Attend A Church
Some people see the church as a hospital. These kind
of people come to church only when they have been
battered by the devil.
And they stop coming once they receive healing.
They hardly go to church when they are strong and
okay.
The Bible says concerning the early Church that;
Acts 2:46
[46]And they, continuing DAILY with one accord in the
temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did
eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
They came together daily. Not once in a while but
daily. That is how a good Christian should attend a
believers meeting. Be consistent.
• Attending Church Just Because Of The Pastor
Acts 13:42
[42]And when the Jews were gone out of the
synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words
might be preached to them the next sabbath.
Acts 13:44
[44]And the next sabbath day came almost the whole
city together to hear the word of God.
After Paul preached in Pisidian Antioch. The people
got fascinated with what they heard and wanted to
hear more.
More so, in the next Sabbath, the whole city gathered
to hear Paul. This had never been recorded before
Paul preached there. That the whole city gathered to
hear one man.
However, we can say, those people came out
massively to hear God’s Word from the mouth of
Paul.
Some come to church because they love the way the
pastor preaches and virtually everything the pastor
does.
They always anticipate the time
the pastor will mount the pulpit and preach.
However, this kind of
people leave the church once the pastor they love
has been transferred.
It is not advisable for you to attend a Church because
of a particular Pastor because once he fails into sin.
You will be discouraged.
History Of The Church
• To Showcase New Clothes[/]
1 Timothy 2:9
[9]In like manner also, that women adorn
themselves in modest apparel, with
shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided
hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
Some people come to church in order to showcase
the new dresses/clothes they have just bought.
They want people to see that they are also
beautiful and good looking.
These people only attend church once in a while
when they have new dress to show to people in
church.
Church is not a Fashion Parade Show. You are in
Church to meet with the Lord not man.
[b]• To Charge
This happens wherever there is poor power supply,
especially in Nigeria.
Sadly, some people go to church because they want
to charge their gadgets.
You will not see them around when their phones are
fully charged but they will suddenly show up in
church whenever they have flat batteries.
These people would focus their
attention on the phones they are charging, they are
less concerned with the message the pastor is
preaching.
Good Heart
• To Serve God
There are believers who come to church basically to
serve the Lord and to genuinely contribute to the
progress of the ministry.
They see the ministry as own their life. The can do
almost everything to see that God’s work is
progressive.
They don’t come because of a specific man/woman of
God. Their aim is to genuinely fund and support the
ministry.
May you not lack such people in your ministry.
May the Lord change the heart of people in order to
attend church
with right reasons.
