The top ten reasons not to go to church,
Clingy Christians may come and lurch!
It is so boring that I’m sure to fall asleep,
The Pastor’s message may make me weep!
I am too busy with sports and stuff,
In my life I have enough!
They want all the money I labor for,
Or they think they’re better, for I am poor!
I am too tired, from a week of work,
The singing and dancing, they are berserk!
And the number one reason in the nation,
they are hypocrite’s, crying tribulation!
With ten more reasons I’ll sum this up,
to why my friend you should drink this cup!
Church is a place where love abounds,
A place where the lost can be found!
Church is made up of God’s people,
that gather together under a steeple!
Yes, they stumble, sometimes they fall,
But given the chance, your phone they’d call!
Every person who does attend,
Has had a hurt they’d like to mend!
There is fellowship and spiritual guidance,
When all the laughter has subsided!
It is a place that does help others,
Everyone is called sisters and brothers!
But the number one reason to go to church,
Is to draw close to Jesus, and yes it works!
I remember the day I first walked in,
I knew they could see my faults, my sin!
I thought they judged me from the start,
But oh so wrong, on my part!
Now I myself am one of THEM,
And NO my friend I don’t CONDEMN!
We have all made mistakes,
But thanks you Jesus, he gives and takes!
He gives life to all who ask,
And took the sin in which we bask!
He showed me love, and now I can share,
Will you come my friend, I'll save you a chair!
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works. Not
forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but
exhorting one another: and so much more, as you see the day approaching.
Hebrews 10: 24-25
