Inviting someone to church won’t just change their life, it will change their eternity.
“You don’t know what God’s going to do through who you reach.” - Pastor Bil Cornelius
Dear Jesus, you want us to live with bold faith. Give us your eyes for lost people and a heart to reach out to them with confidence to invite them to church this week. Help us to start living that way today. Help us cut a hole in our schedules and our hearts to evangelize. In your name we pray, Amen.
