Why would God care if I regularly went to church or not? If we truly want to grow as Christians then fellowshipping with other believers, hearing the Word of God, and worshipping the Lord are the perfect places to begin. Worshipping God corporately provides us a unique opportunity to see what God is doing in the lives of his people in the wider church community, and God wants to be glorified in what he does and in who he is.
The question “Does God Really Care About…?” Can be asked another way. “Why does God Care whether we Obey Him or Not?” That is really the underlying question. The short answer is that obedience to God proves our love for him, demonstrates our faithfulness to him, glorifies him in the world, and opens avenues of blessing for us. If our faith is genuine and true, we will live a lifestyle characterized by righteousness, modeling the example set for us by Jesus Christ. We obey his commands, not because we have to, but because we want to, because we love him. We are enabled to obey because, once we believe in Christ and are saved, we are remade. We are not the same people we once were.
