Read: Psalm 122
Key Verse: “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord’” - Psalm 122:1
How do you feel about going to church? Why? Sadly, many people have had negative experiences and stay away from churches. It is important to be discerning when looking for a church: Are the people sincere and loving? Is the Bible taught? Is Jesus exalted? Is the Holy Spirit leading?
Being part of a church family is not only for your gain; it also benefits the people you will serve. When you arrive at church, are you ready to worship and praise God? Are you listening for His voice? Prepare your heart to meet with God. Many people show up late, wait for their favorite song before they seek God, criticize the sermon and the people up front, never use their gifts, and miss many blessings. Your approach may determine your joy. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.
