11 Tips On How To Overcome Going Late To. Church


No body ever loves going to work late especially due to the possible fines you might incur. That should also apply to our service to our God. Also, just like meeting up with regular appointments in life, going to church is one sacred appointment that believers are earnestly encouraged to meet up to, as the Bible urged us “Not to forsake the gathering of believers”. But it is pertinent to note that, its one thing to ‘GO TO CHURCH’ and another to ‘GOT TO CHURCH EARLY’; the keyword is ‘EARLY’.

let your worship be a sweet smelling sacrifice to God.“They that seek Me early shall find Me.” says Proverbs 8:17

Going to church early invokes the blessing of the Lord upon your life. Don’t be a habitual late comer to church, it’s a dishonour to your God. Lateness to service is unfaithfulness. Don’t also form the habit of choosing Sundays that you like for Church service. All Sundays are important to God as long as you are healthy.

2. Polish/clean footwear before you sleep.

3. Get your Bible, jotter, etc. ready in one place.

4. Get your tithe & offering ready.

5. Sleep early.

6. Wake up on time.

7. Avoid saying “Even when I get there early, I won’t meet anyone” Get there early and let someone come and meet you too. Don’t forget you are also someone.

8. Washing on Sundays before church is not encouraged. It may delay you.

9. If it takes you 15 minutes to drive/walk to the church, always make allowance for extra time in case of anything. For instance, if service is 7am and it takes you 10 minutes to drive/walk to church, it’s always better to leave home 6:40.
