FW: Why go to Church?

13 Nov


Why go to Church? (This is good)

If you’re spiritually alive, you’re going to love this! If you’re

spiritually dead, you won’t want to read it. If you’re spiritually

curious, there is still hope!

Why Go To Church?

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and

complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I’ve

gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard

something like 3,000 sermons.

But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I

think I am wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by

giving sermons at all."

This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column,

much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone

wrote this clincher:

"I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked

some 32000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire

menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this.. They all

nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my

wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be

spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing…. God is UP to

something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives

the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!

All right, now that you’re done reading, send it on! I think everyone

should read this!  "When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say,

"Jesus, could you get that for me?"
