The Inviting Church!


I am so excited about this new year!  I am excited about our theme for the days ahead at FCCD!  Being the INVITING CHURCH!   An inviting church is a church filled with inviting people.  People inviting others to be a part of our lives together.  Inviting one another into our homes, to our worship, to study and to prayer.  Inviting one another into relationships that matter and change lives.  First Christian Church – the church that invites! 

On Sunday we talked about the invitation to come see Jesus.  Based on John 1:38-39. 

38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

 

My question for us this week is where do people see Jesus?  The answer is for most people is “in the people who believe in him.”  That’s right.  People see Jesus in the lives of those who have him in their hearts.  If you have received him, you are a walking video of Jesus for your friends and neighbors, loved ones and enemies.  Of course this leads to the question:  Who do people see when they look at you?  Do they see a child of the most high God?  Do they see a compassionate loving soul?  Do they see a joy filled, loving friend?   I believe this is an important part of becoming the church that invites!   

Who are you inviting to see Jesus in you?
