Church-goers or Church-growers?

When we do something very often, it can become mundane and ritualistic. We can end up just going through the motion without experiencing its true meaning and purpose. Church going is one such activity that we should be careful of. Do we just go in and out of the church without experiencing edification and transformation? Are we just mere church-goers? Let us not slip into spiritual lethargy for those things that we do repeatedly; may it be attending prayer meetings, church services, bible-study or fellowship. We can find meaning in all these things we do as Christians as long as we take time to listen to what God is saying to us and translate what we got into valuable spiritual lessons. These things can be opportunities for us to grow in the Lord and experience Him in a new way. Not only can we be edified, we can move on to help to grow the church too. Do not just always wait for people to attend to us or to spoon-feed us, true growth happens when we invest in the lives of others and impart what we have learnt to them. Let us choose to be church-growers and not be satisfied with just being church-goers.
