“to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”
Acts 26:18 NIV
Read: Acts 26: 15-18
With a bellowing voice that could be heard in the next city, everyone was greeted with more than a simple ‘Good morning’. This gentile giant made you feel welcome as you came up the walk to the doors of the church with his sincere southern “Goooood Mornnnnniin’!
He was a servant of GOD. He refused positions of leadership preferring to be a server rather than in a leadership position. Even so, he led hundreds, even thousands, to know JESUS was their SAVIOUR as well.
You and I have the same opportunities. ‘Good morning!’ is a start…a very good start. A conversation is easier to start with a simple greeting. If you think it is difficult to witness to another, lay that notion aside.
Did you know the main reason someone goes to a new church? It is because they are invited! The opposite is also true. The main reason someone does not go to church is because no one asked them. The second reason someone will go to a new church is they feel overwhelmed with a situation, depressed, worried or lonely. …..and all they need is a ‘Good morning!’ and an invitation.
Tell someone ‘Good morning!’ or ‘Good afternoon!’. Then tell them about your church and invite them to go with you. You may be surprised when they say ‘Yes!’.
Today’s prayer: “LORD, Thank YOU for giving me a church family to worship YOU with. Give me the strength to open the door for others to learn and worship YOU. Amen.”
