Elihu's Corner

“Why do I have to go to church?”

“I can do “church” on my own.”

“I don’t get anything out of it.”

I’ve heard all of them. I used to say the last one in my weaker seasons.

I once had a friend tell me, “I can worship God anywhere. I can do church in a forest. I can do it alone.” In one sense, he was right. We can worship God on the highest mountain or the lowest pit. He is not confined to a church building, but God intended for us to have community as Christians so we could help each other.

So what’s the point of “going to church” if I can worship God anywhere?

What if it is boring, inconvenient, or full of hypocrites?
