To go to Church to "see and be seen", or because it is the "thing to do", or worse yet, just to "satisfy someone else's wishes", when all you want to do is get it over with. Going to Church is not to "memorize" the sermon or message. The message is to be absorbed, pondered and applied into our lives. We go to Church to Praise GOD, Give thanks and be Grateful, to stimulate one another to love and GODLY actions and to encourage one another. James 1:25, tells us there are four kinds of people who enter the Churches (Synagogues): 1) those who enter but does not apply; 2) those who "try" to apply but does not enter (either of these are people who are indifferent to GOD); 3) those who enter and apply the WORD to their lives (these are the ones who want to GLORIFY GOD); and 4) those who neither enter or applies GOD'S WORD to their lives (these do not seek GOD). The GOSPEL must be received and applied in totality with all of ITS promises, warnings, its precepts and ALL of ITS PRIVILEGES; OR WHY GO TO CHURCH AT ALL?
