Why Go To Church? 
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained
that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone for 30 years
now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think
I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much
to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this
clincher:  "I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has
cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the
entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this...They all
nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had
not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I
had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" 
When you are DOWN to nothing..... God is UP to something! Faith sees the
invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God
for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! 
 "When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could you get that".
