In any church service there is a diverse group of people, some who are Christians and some who are not as well as believers at different stages of spiritual growth. Every church environment is different, some are very quiet and reflective while others are robust and engaging. While the body of Christ is one in the Spirit, there are diverse ways that believers worship and celebrate the Risen Lord. But why do some church members remain unblessed even after a power packed programme?
Some of the reasons I have been able to gather are:
1. SPEAKING AGAINST THE VESSEL:-
When you speak againt your pastor in the secret but claim to love him in the open, You can’t be blessed. The oil you speak againt can’t bless you.
2. NO PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD:-
Most church members don’t have personal relationship with GOD. They usually rely on their pastor for everything.
I don’t have problems with getting close to your pastor but don’t get familiar. Over familiarity will make you see your pastor as an ordinary person and you won’t be taking him serious even when he is speaking from the spirit realm.
4. OFFENCES AND HATRED:-
Most church members are habouring offences in their heart. Offences against their pastor, his wife, or offences against a fellow church member. Offences is the mother of hatred. If this is found in you, Gods blessings will be very far from you.
Life is a battle ground and if you don’t create a strong atmosphere of prayers in your life, you can’t access certain blessings because the kingdom of darkness is also interested in making that blessings not to get to you. There could be forces that are hindrances to your blessings, if you don’t pray, you will become a prey.
6. GOSSIPS (BBC) BELIEVER’S BROADCASTING CORPORATION:-
Most church members are busy gossiping with other people’s names. Gossip and mockery are twins and once it’s found in you, blessings can’t come close.
7. LIVING IN SIN:-
God hates sin because it sinks peoples blessings. You can’t be praying for God’s blessings while you’re still living in the estate sin of the devil.
That Leads Us To 12 Bad Habits To Avoid In Church:
Chatting and recieving calls during church service
Folding your hands when your pastor is teaching. You are telling him that what he is saying is not worth writing .
Refusing to sit where the ushers direct you to sit, it shows you are disorderly.
Running out to pick calls with your phone ringing out so loud. This is absolute madness.
Lateness to church. Some people have this as an unbreakable habit.
Starring at every beautiful girl you see and making them uncomfortable.
Sleeping in church during sermon
Sitting down during prayer or praise session. This make you look very odd. You also demoralize the service coordinators .
Looking at the clock on the wall and then the watch on your wrist and then looking at the pastor’s face insinuating that he should round up.
Borrowing things like phone chargers,pen etc and leaving with them claiming you forgot.
Always leaving the church before closure for no particular appointment, making others who choose to stay till the end of service look over zealous.
Gathering outside the church to discuss while service is going on.
God bless us.
