Membership Has Its Benefits - A Few Good Reasons to be a Christian

Regardless of where folks are with God, or not, personally I feel that being a Christian has a lot of benefits.

As an entrepreneur a few years back, I always  thought it was cool flashing my American Express Gold and Platinum cards to make purchases. Their theme line: Membership has its benefits had a nice ring. Umm but I don't know what they are.

Here are some things that I like about being a Christian.

Coffee - I have to say, for all the years I have attended church, I don't think I've had a bad cup of coffee. In fact, I really like the coffee at my current church. Good job!

Music - Certain types of Christian music is pleasing and I look forward to it. Live music is a little more engaging than the CD player/iPod/Cassettes/8 Tracs. I do wish there were more talented Christian guitarists like Lincoln Brewster. And I liked Eric Clapton better when he was a heathen.

Hours - Except for Midnight Mass an Easter Sunrise service, the church hours are pretty good. Not too early or too late - actually just right - well, unless their is a boring teaching or sermon. But that's what Facebook Mobile is for.

Kid's Church - I like kids church. It is usually a craft or some fun video. And I get a little extra time with my little one.

Testimonies - I love to hear about how God Is working in people's lives. There are way too many opinions out there on what/who/how God works. I am not talking about coincidences, I mean I was sick and now I am healed, I was demon possessed and now I'm not, I was an addict and now I am clean, I was lost and now I'm saved. If you can sit through years at church without seeing God do anything, you have way more faith than I do!. When God shows up, there isn't a lot too say except GLORY!

Heaven -  Eternity is cool, because all the debate will be over. There will be one theology, one church - I like that. Then I will have received the goal of my faith. I used to think about all the people that I would see there that I have known. Honestly, I just want to be with Jesus. Let me know if you want to come along.

How about you, what do you like about being a Christian?

I love the FREEDOM that following Christ brings into my life.

Freedom from condemnation, guilt, worry, sadness, etc......replaced with love, joy, hope and faith!

great post!

None of those things are intrinsic to Xianity and actually come as a benefit of your beliefs.
