3 Reasons to Invite Someone to Easter
1. People will come on Easter.
No matter who you are, if you've grown up in the bible belt you've probably at least heard of an Easter church service. Many of us have memories of our grandmothers in their Easter dresses and grandfathers in their Easter suits and the family dinners with meals big enough for a small army. Easter is more then a holiday it’s a family tradition, and around here traditions run deep. Before writing off that family member or friend you think won’t come, remember Easter is the one time of the year they probably would! It carries with it more then just a church service, it carries with it history, memories, and tradition.
2. People are curious
There’s always a certain amount of curiosity inside of us. A lot of people wonder what’s the big deal about Easter. Non-Christians have a curiosity to why this time is so important to us. There’s not a bigger day for the church then Easter. Never underestimate the potential inside a little bit of curiosity.
Luke 2:15-16 says that when the shepherds heard about Jesus’ birth they said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened…” so they hurried off and found Mary, Joseph and the baby who was lying in a manger.
@@Curiosity brought the shepherds to a place to meet Jesus, and curiosity could be what leads your friends and family to meet Jesus as well.@@
3. People need hope.
Life is full of unforeseen and unknown circumstances. Broken marriages, loss of loved ones, and doctor’s reports we never hoped to hear. We live in a world that often feels so hopeless.
Romans 15:13 says “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
@@Your invite isn't just an invitation for someone to come to church. Your invite is an innovation for someone to experience hope.@@Jesus uses each of us to bring others to a place where they can experience the hope and peace of Jesus. People are looking for hope, craving for hope, needing hope, and your invite just might be what they have been hoping for.
