Christianity Is So Much More Than Going To Church

The beauty of Christianity is that there are many facets that make up its entirety. When someone finds themselves in a relationship with Christ, there is more to its being than simply attending a church building or spending more time in prayer. Christianity is more than sitting in seats and listening to sermons. There is more…

First let me try to redefine the way you view church, as it is not simply just a building that one attends on a weekly basis, but instead who one is on a daily basis. We are the church, and we are called to reflect the image of Jesus in our everyday lives.

When we take this reality to heart, every aspect of our lives then becomes a mission field, a space to worship in, and a realm to shine your light in. The world is God’s canvas and the Holy Spirit wants to use you to create a masterpiece known as The Great Commission.

Christianity is so much more than you could ever imagine it would be, and that’s part of the beauty. Alongside an already fulfilling relationship with Jesus, one will find true meaning and purpose through the will of God. Every aspect of your life will now have direction, and your everyday journey of life will now be accompanied by the Spirit of God himself. When we limit Christianity to nothing more than attending church, we are truly forfeiting the almighty power of God.

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”―C.S. Lewis

Attending church is incredible, but it’s just one of the many beautiful layers that Christianity has for you discover. Alongside the communal body referred to as The Church comes true life, discipleship, repentance, relentless grace, hope, unrestricted love, serving the least of these and so much more. Christianity is so much more than going to church.

Lean into the Spirit of God, and allow that power to guide you every step of every day. The Christian life is a breathtaking journey filled with adventure and excitement. Layer upon layer, you will you encounter the beauty and majesty of being a follower of Jesus.

    I’m glad you mention how going to church is incredible but it’s also important to make sure you are a follower of Jesus and reflect him in our daily lives. When going to church, you’d probably want to listen to the teachings so you can learn how to become a better Christian. Making sure you become part of a good, strong, Christian community would probably be a great way to improve your knowledge and turn towards Jesus.

    I’ve been a member of several Churches during my life journey mainly due to geography. I found each one served the Lord and their community differently. But at the core of each was the Great Commission for it is God’s passion that all may be saved.

    This is so true! So much has been lost in the rules and rituals of “church” that it would be completely alien to the early Christians! Let’s get back to the adventure of faith that Jesus always intended for us!

    My favorite part is where you explain that church isn’t a building we attend ins weekly basis but who we are on a daily basis. I needed that reminder!
