Nourished By Our Lord

“Listen! Whoever is thirsty, come to the water! Whoever has no money can come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk. You don’t have to pay; its free!”

– Isaiah 55:1

church-goersTo most of us, going to church every Sunday (or any other day of the week, for that matter) is a privilege.  For others, however,  church can be a chore – something they feel like they have to do because that’s what everyone else does.  They don’t see how being in the company of believers, worshiping as a community, and being in God’s house is such an important and uplifting part of our faith.  Read this great argument for why we should ALL go to church…

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.  “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons.  But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them.  So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.”

This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column, much to the delight of the editor.  It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
“I’ve been married for 30 years now.  In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.  But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.  But I do know this… They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.  If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”
