If you are in the birthday party years, you have a lot of invitations floating around your house. For several years when our daughter was younger, it seemed like she could have attended a birthday party almost every weekend. The children were great about inviting just about everyone they knew. Perhaps for more presents, but I choose to think they wanted everyone to share in the fun they knew would be a part of their special day.When is the last time your child invited friends to Church? Do they just assume everyone they know already has a Church home? Do they even know if their friends go to Church regularly? If your children invite their friends to Church, do they only do so for special occasions like Vacation Bible School?
I want to challenge your family to invite at least one person to Church every week. They don’t have to say yes, but do your best to share the joy and love they will find when they visit your Church and learn about God.
Wouldn’t it be great if our children started pulling up to Church with as many friends as they do to the birthday party places? How many children would be learning about God for the first time? How many lives would it change? Most importantly, how many souls would be saved?
While your children are practicing, join them. Invite some of your friends, neighbors or co-workers to worship, too. Maybe if we can all start the habit of giving regular invitations to Church, we would begin seeing a radical transformation as God worked all around us. I would love to hear what happens in a comment below!
