Why I Believe Success Begins on Sunday


This past Sunday, I talked about the power of belonging. God designed us to live in community and fellowship and He made the church to fulfill that need in a way that nothing else can. I said it last week and I will continue to say it, “Success begins on Sunday.” In order for follower of Christ to live a life without limits and become what God designed them to be, we need the church! Here is why I believe success begins on Sunday.

  • Church encourages you and helps fight discouragement.

  • Attending church and hearing God’s Word builds your faith.

  • There is something unique and life-giving about corporate worship with other believers.

  • Church is the best place to use your spiritual gifts and talents to serve the Body of Christ.

  • Being a part of a church is really the only way to fulfill the Great Commission (taking the gospel to the entire world) fully.

  • Church helps you to fulfill the Great Commandment to love God and love others.

  • Church is where you can be fed spiritually.

  • Church prepares you for the week ahead.

  • Church empowers you to get through difficult times.

  • You find support, love, and acceptance in church.

  • It is family!

  • You learn about generous living.

  • You make a serious impact when you combine your giving with others.

  • Church helps you find your purpose in life.

  • Belonging matters. It helps you spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

  • People pray for you at church.

  • You feel like you are not alone and have support at church.

  • You get a sense of belonging.

  • You get a spiritual family to support and encourage you.

  • You get an environment to fully develop your gifts.

  • You get spiritual protection from godly leaders.

  • You get accountability to help you grow spiritually.

  • You develop close relationships through small groups and serving.

  • You learn the Bible through teaching and discipleship.

  • You get to use your gifts for ministry.

  • You partner with the church to share your faith and reach others.

  • You are better able to bring your family to Christ.

The list could go on, but you get the point. I believe that regularly attending, serving, giving, worshipping, and fellowshipping empowers you to be your best at home, at work, and at play. Success begins on Sunday. It is not just a slogan; it is the path to winning.
