Personal Invitations


"Many peoples will come and say, 'Come let us go to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we might walk in his paths'" (Isa.2:3).

We can see Isaiah prophesying here that many would invite their friends to learn about God. There is something special about an invitation, especially one that entails our faith and willingness to share it. In our New Testaments we have many good examples of people wanting to share the good news of Jesus with others. "The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon (Peter) and tell him, 'We have found the Messiah'" (Jn.1:41). Andrew's first reaction was to invite his brother Peter to meet Jesus..."Philip found Nathaniel and told him, 'We have found the one who Moses wrote about in the law'" (Jn.1:42). We find here that Philip found Nathaniel and invited him to meet Jesus..."Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 'Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?'" (Jn.4:28-29). The Samaritan woman dropped everything and told her neighbors about Jesus. "Then Levi (Matthew) held a great banquet at his house and invited a large crowd of tax collectors and others who were eating with them." (Lk.5:29) Matthew was so excited about meeting Jesus that he held a feast and invited many to meet Him. A good precedent has been set for us. We see that many have come to know Jesus because they were invited. Are we as impressed with Jesus as those we have just read about? If so, shouldn't we be inviting people to get to know Him too?

Have a wonderful day....Serve the Lord with gladness.... Love mark Phil.4:11
