The Power of Invitation

28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.  Matthew 11:28-30

How often do you “invite” someone to see a YouTube posting, a funny video on Facebook?  We say, “Hey, look at this…”  Or, “Did you see the video about....”  

Clearly we invite people to what excites us. Is it fair to ask how excited are with about Jesus?  In a way, I think it is.

We also warn.  Consider how we warn others about bad traffic, hopefully helping them forgo the frustrations of Baton Rouge traffic!  Again, is fair to ask how concerned we are about where people are headed, not in town, but life?  I think so.  

This series isn’t about guilting people into action.  It is about showing them the Inviting God who pursues us in Love.  If this is his heart, and he pursued us through another’s invitation, aren’t we motivated to consider inviting others to him?
