Don’t go to church if you don’t like people. Church is full of them! Filled with all kinds of messy and broken people – but you know what? -you are no different.
Don’t go to church if you like comfort – Going to church will shake up your life – if it isn’t doing that, then I recommend that you find another church.
Don’t go to church if like the way you are – God wants to change you…conform and transform you more and more into the image of Jesus.
Don’t go to church if you want to hold onto your money – Because fundamentally it isn’t yours anyway.
Don’t go to church if you want to remain anonymous – Going to church isn’t like enlisting in the witness protection program – you can’t hide.
Don’t go to church because they may ask you to serve in some role. I mean, isn’t it more intellectually stimulating to sit on couch eating nachos and watching Simpsons re-runs?
Don’t go to church because we all know that they are full of hypocrites – But who isn’t? Thank God for Jesus and the cross!
