Church and "HOW"?
In my last post I wrote briefly on the topic of "Why Church?" For any endeavor to be successful in any measurable way for any amount of time, there must be a motivating reason. This is your "Why?" Christian, you have your great reason, and his name is Jesus Christ. He is our "cause" to quote king David. He has given you a book to love and live by and in this book we find the "Why Church?" reasons discussed in the last article. They were: 1 Involvement. 2 Accountability. 3 Nourishment. 4 Obedience. Now let's look at what the Bible says concerning HOW church can bring these great WHY's to pass.
HOW will church bring the four WHY's to pass?
1-There are ministry opportunities at church. Romans 12:7-13
Our independent church is in Cody to be a light to this area. Acts 20:8
2-There is pure fellowship at church. 1 John 1:7
Iron sharpeneth iron. Proverbs 27:17
3-There is Bible preached at church. 1 Corinthians 15:1
This is where you will be rebuked at times, edified, and fed. 2 Timothy 4:2
4-There is a corporate gathering at church. 1 Corinthians 5:4
It is a great witness to the lost world. We are called out. 1 Peter 2:9
Take a minute to review the previous post and then match up each of the four points! In the next post(June 14th), we will look specifically and literally at WHAT activities church offers to enable the HOWS, which are motivated by the WHY's.
