5 Benefits of church going for family life (Part 2)

Hey there! Jesus loves you

In my last post I gave the first 5 benefits of Church going for family life. Today, I want to share the last 5 benefits. Family is the bed rock of the church. Should the family be unstable, the church will certainly be affected. So, church activities are programmed among other things, to build a stable family life for members.

Here are the other benefits

1. Avoidance of trouble

Church going has been a great blessing to my family. We have kept away from troubles because we chose to be in church when there was service in church.  The people who would have put us into trouble did not find us available for outings that would have ruined our family life.

2. Choice of company

Going to church enables you to choose the right company to keep. Children make friends with people that love God and will never lead them astray. Children who go to church and participate fully with their hearts tend to overcome peer pressure more.

3. Choice of spouse

When you go to church, you have the opportunity to meet and marry a God fearing person. The marriage foundation will be solid because both of you are on the same spiritual platform which is needed for a successful family life

4. Peace

Families who go to church enjoy peace at home. Jesus, the prince of peace whom we fellowship with in church, follows us home to continue the fellowship there.  The word of God in us individually produces peace in us which ultimately reflects in our relationship with one another

5. Channel for salvation

Most importantly, church going gives people the opportunity to change and give their lives to Christ Jesus. God wants people to come to church no matter what they may have done. The word of God we hear constantly produces the faith to be saved. And if any member of the family is yet to give his or her life to Jesus, continued church going will eventually help the person(s) to be saved.

Church going is not just to satisfy your conscience but to build you and your family up, and to give you rest from untold loads of heartaches. Embrace going to church today and enjoy the blessing of God and rest on every side.

What else can you add to this list of benefits?
