I want to thank everyone for your efforts to invite the unchurched and dechurched people to worship with you at First Assembly. How many times have I stated that often the reason many people don’t attend church is simply because they’ve not been invited by someone who is close to them or at least familiar with them. It’s a statistical reality; People are more likely to attend church when invited by a friend than just taking the initiative and going on their own. That’s why I often reiterate the power of the invitation.
This truth is exemplified in John 4 when the woman at the well who, upon meeting Jesus and placed her faith in Him, ran to the town and invited all the men of Sychar to come and meet Jesus. As a direct result of this one woman’s invitation an entire town was won to Christ.
It was in this same story that Jesus instructed the disciple to not think that the harvest is four months off but right now. It is a harvest that can be collected one by one by simple individual, personal invitations. Let’s build the kingdom by inviting the lost.
Blessings!!! Pastor Randy
