A church is a community of people that are passionate about Jesus. In fact a church is a movement stirred by Jesus to let the world know of who Jesus is and how good he is to the world. As a church, we carry the best news in the world. The news that Jesus comes to rescue people from bondage and that Jesus gives people freedom, hope, purpose, meaning and value.
We invite people to something that is greater and better. We invite people to something we know will be beneficial to them because it has been beneficial to us. We invite people to be a part of something that matters the most. God’s kingdom matters more than anything in the world.
When people are invited they feel valued, they feel a sense of belonging. The good news is that there’s a special house (Gods Kingdom) where everyone is invited to come and in this house there’s good things that we can’t keep to ourselves.
In this sermon Pastor Humphreys speaks from John 1:43-51 about inviting the unreached inside our circle. We need to be proactive with inviting people who are already in our circle. These are people we see regularly, talk to regularly or chat with regularly. However we know that they are yet to believe in Jesus or seem to be far from God. These could be family members, friends or colleagues.Jesus is for everybody including those who are close to us. Jesus is for everyone including those who know us well, know our mistakes.
