"What is the big deal about church???  A whole bunch of people get together and sing songs, and then the Pastor preaches a quick word, and blammo... Church is done and you've missed half of the football game.  I just think there are other things I can do with my time to serve God..."

I cannot tell you how many times I have heard that!  Many people think of church as a social gathering, a sacramental task.  However church is not only to praise God, but to help each other, and encourage each other.  We live in a world full of sin, and church helps us get out of that world, and refocus on what we need to accomplish.

As a friend of mine said, "Church is like a gas station, and you are the car.  If you don't go in for a refill, you won't be able to keep going... eventually you run out of 'Spiritual' gas."

And when you think about it, that is exactly what church is.  Church is the fuel to help us continue living as Christians, to help us continue to focus on God, and help us to continually learn about him.

Church is a way for us to get out of our busy world, out of our busy lives, and focus on God.  Focus on becoming a better servant, and focusing on seeking God with our whole heart.
