God Is Real…Meet God at Church!
All human beings depend so heavily on our senses of sight, touch, and smell that we struggle with accepting that God is real. Add that struggle to all the negative things that can happen in life and our default can be feeling lonely, tired, angry, greedy, and anxious among many other unwanted things.
One remedy is people coming together, regularly and in person, to worship God together at church “not abandoning our own meeting together” (Hebrews 10:25). Attending church allows us an enriched experience of God’s presence. Attending church allows us to physically enjoy the continuous reminder and affirmation that God is real and that He hears our prayers and can answer them. This assurance can move us to live a life of faith and thriving.
Every human being wants to thrive, and ideally thrive today.
Attending church is one thing people can do to thrive today.
