Just like our bodies can't grow without food and water, so our spirit can't grow without prayer and the Word of God. Both of these elements are absolutely vital to the growth of every Christian.
If you're saying to yourself that you have a hard time understanding the Bible, don't worry - God has provided a solution. Sitting under the preaching of the Word of God is a great way to begin to learn what the Bible says, and how to understand it when you read it. In fact, the Bible says in Romans 10:17, "...faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Coming to church is more than just an act of tradition, it is the vehicle by which God speaks to us through the preaching and teaching of His Word. It is also a place where we can encourage others and be encouraged by others.
Growing as a Christian requires us be faithful in these areas. Only through faithfulness can we truly "...grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 3:18)
