When it comes to church attendance, many people have the mindset that they merely need to “go to church” each weekend. People can go and sing a few songs and hear a good message and leave, thinking that they have fulfilled their duty. In reality, many people merely go to their religious show each weekend, deceived into thinking that God is pleased with their efforts.
However, church attendance is far more that merely attending a worship service. It’s an opportunity to “be with the body.” When a local church gathers, it’s more than a show. It’s an opportunity to show love and give encouragement to those you know. This can’t happen if everyone in attendance is merely “going to church.”
