Easter Invitation

Don’s parents never ventured into a church with him. But a neighbor invited him faithfully to church every Sunday. He went. At the age of eight, Don, gave his life to the Jesus. For years he rode to church with a neighbor. When Don was older he hopped on his bike and peddled himself to church.

All because a neighbor cared enough to invite a little boy to church, all because someone obeyed the command of Mark 16:15, Don, will have eternal life.

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” (Mark 16:15 NIV)

Easter is the perfect time to invite someone to church. Easter is the time for a new life to rise up with Christ Jesus.

I was also one of those people that someone cared enough to invite me to church. I wasn't a child at the time, but it made the eternal difference in my life. Thanks for reminding me to care enough to invite someone else.
