Invite People into Your Lives Before You Invite Them to “Church”

Don’t invite people to church as much as invite them into your lives. That’s a lot harder to do and takes vulnerability, generosity, and hospitality. It’s easier to keep people at an arm’s length; to invite them to an event instead of dinner; to keep our lives pretty.

The generous outpouring of life on a cross took great sacrifice. But Jesus was willing to disply the ultimate generosity for the sake of others. As we sacrifice (far less than Jesus did), as we bless, serve, spend money and time on others; as we bring the best food, drink, music and “life,” we display gospel generosity. If we invite people into our life let’s show them the time of their lives.
