1. Keeps Jesus Christ as Centre of your life
It is of great significance to be in God’s presence. Personally, I think of it as setting apart a time for God because he more than deserves my time. It’s in gratitude for what Christ has done for me. We are called to be disciples and follow the Lord’s commandments. If you’re a Christian and God is in the centre of your life, you’re doing it right.
The Son of God sacrificed his life and died for our sins. The least we can do is take one hour of 24, one day of the week to visit His Holy Place. Anyone who claims to be a follower of Christ should do so. During Mass, receiving the Body and Blood of our Lord brings us into a continuous reminder that God is with us and in us. If we believe that, then it has a huge effect on our behaviour and mindset.
2. You Learn about your Faith Actively
Things said in the Mass have the ability to open your mind and speak to you. Hearing the Word of God is special and has a lot of meaning to be interpreted. Each Gospel has a story, and homilies come with life lessons. You may even start to incorporate these teachings into your life. It’s an opportunity to grow mentally and spiritually, plus it can be pretty interesting.
3. Helps you heal quickly
Certainly, many churchgoers struggle with behaviours they would like to change, but on average, regular church attendees drink less, smoke less, use fewer recreational drugs and are less sexually promiscuous than others. The church offers guidance and acceptance, reconciliation and everlasting love. Whatever you are going through, the church can help you through it.
4. What better way to prepare for your week?
It’s a fresh start for the next seven days. Practicing your faith, consistently, is something to be proud of. You will be challenged, you will learn, you will grow. It’s a good example for those around you.
There are many important and valuable parts of life. Practicing your faith religiously no pun intended is one of them.
So, make it a priority. Let it be a part of who you are. Set a good example for your children. If you devote yourself, you will be rewarded … in this life, and the next.
