Your church needs you…even if you don’t go to church. God has a church out there for you, and they are suffering from a you-sized-hole right now. You could be the one who helps out with the kids….the one who writes notes to encourage the pastor…the one who always remembers to bring food for the food pantry…the one who always welcomes new people with a warm handshake…the crazy one. I’m not sure which one you are, but you are an important puzzle piece in the kingdom of God.
You may have a very good reason not to go to church. A church may have hurt you in the past. I’m sure you did not deserve that, but it’s time to forgive and find a new church. Maybe you have to work Sundays. What if you told your boss you have decided to get serious about church attendance and request Sundays off? Or you could visit a church on Wednesday evenings.
Keep trying new churches until you feel certain God has placed you there, but rest assured that God is placing you somewhere. Church is for every believer. We need to pray for one another and encourage one another in God. We can do more together than separately. What? You don’t know God? You belong in church too. God’s house is a great place to be introduced.
