In the past few months I’ve pondered the question of why we believe in God. I have heard sermons where it seems I’m being encouraged to work for the church because I will be rewarded. That’s nice, but is that why I should do it? If you are a Christian, I have some questions for you because I am curious to know why.
Are you a Christian because you want to go to heaven?
Are you a Christian because you want to go to heaven and then come back to inhabit the New Jerusalem?
Do you go to church because God promised to bless you?
Do you give tithe and offering because God promised to bless your household?
Are you a Christian because you’re playing it safe just in case God exists?
Do you love God because He loved you first?
Do you love Jesus because of his great sacrifice in Calvary?
Why do you go to church?
Why do you want to follow Jesus?
I’m just curious, why are you a Christian?
