Sometimes believers struggle with "organized religion" and give up attending group worship because they disagree with how the church has behaved in the past or they don't like the idea of being part of an "institution." This is exactly what Satan wants. We must remember that the church is made up of fallible people who will mess up, but we worship a perfect God. The only way for Christians to grow is by learning together - encouraging, challenging, and holding each other accountable.
Questions for further thought:
1. What needs to change in your life to make attending worship services a priority?
2. How can you motivate someone to grow in their walk with Christ?
Challenge: Find a small group or bible study to join and really commit to learning from and connecting with the other believers in the group.
