IMPROVED LIFE IN 2017?When considering any major course corrections for the new year, and improving your life and future, it is hard to imagine a more positive choice than starting or increasing your church attendance, support & involvement.
Verifiable research has consistently shown that regular church attendance increases marital satisfaction, and marital intimacy, boosts family cohesion, kids do better in school, it enables better physical health, emotional and mental well-being, boosts the immune system, decreases blood pressure, and this may add as much as 2 to 3 years to your life. The value of the social and community support found in a close, loving church family is also immeasurable. On top of all of that and much more, is the wonderful spiritual support that is found in Christian fellowship, teaching and prayer.
(In these studies, regular church attendance was seen as 3 – 4 X a month. Attendance beyond that level, midweek Bible studies, etc., increases the above benefits. It is very interesting that sporadic church attendance -once or twice a month- provides none of these benefits. Can anyone say ‘lukewarm’)
Get to church somewhere this weekend, make sure they teach and preach the Bible, make it a Holy habit and get involved, you need them and they need you.
