One of the great gifts that God gave believers is the institution of believers’ congregational gathering and fellowship. The scriptures clearly show that God called us into relationship with Him and to fellowship of the brethren.
Some people have taught that being in a relationship with God is not about going to church. They say that as long as you and God are in a relationship, then it suffices; but that is not scriptural.
There are people who dislike church meetings for many reasons:
1. they have been hurt in church before
2. they were not brought up going to church, so it is not in them
3. they know some church folks who are hypocrites
4. they find church boring
5. the service is too long etc.
Whatever the case, the truth remains that when we come into relationship with God, we are meant to orientate ourselves regarding godly principles, His values and the way His kingdom is designed to function. Every believer needs to understand how our kingdom functions and he must align himself to it.
I have seen that some people want to follow God but on their own terms, or the way it suits them better but it is not so with God. To follow God, it must be at His own terms not ours. And He has said,
“...........consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is........” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Believers’ fellowship is the way God has designed this kingdom, our kingdom. Every believer must therefore be a part of the believers gathering for corporate worship, corporate prayer and the ministry of the Word.
Believers benefit a lot when they come together in fellowship. In fellowship we establish friendship or relationship with other believers and through that friendship, our lives are impacted. We all do not possess everything; we need some people coming into our lives to fulfil God's plan for our lives.
