Then comes that time when we go out on our own. This is the point when life happens. Oh those demands of life, work, family, balancing home and work.....you get the picture. This is the time that momma's switch is not in the rear view mirror. We are left to our own convictions. We must decide what benefit, what value JESUS brings to our lives. We wrestle with the effort we are willing to make to maintain that spiritual connection in a church environment. It is hard. At least for me, I started out single trying to attend church every Sunday more out of habit and guilt than anything. I liked being able to say I was attending church no matter what Saturday brought.
When I became married, I transitioned into, "We must go to church, it is the right thing for us and the marriage." This was the toughest period of all. If you both aren't in agreement you can be persuaded easily.
Then kids. "We must attend church because that is how we were raised!" That is hard because if you aren't in it "for real", it is work.......hard work.
So why are you still going to church? Why do you worship? No need to tell you what the bible says. It is important to know for yourself why? Why are you in this so called relationship with your maker?
