Did you hear about the guy that was invited to an event he wasn’t particularly interested in but is going anyway?

HalIt’s me! Yep, that’s right, it is me. I was invited by a certain acquaintance to attend a good event that I’m not particularly fired up about due to all that’s going on in my life as a pastor, husband, dad, grandad, friend, etc.  (You are busy, you get it.)  But here’s what I will tell you, I was not offended, fully expected it at some point, and am going to go because I appreciate the passion this person has by including me.  I really believe this individual thinks our church and I will be better off because of it.  So, there you go…

EASTER Sunday is an ideal time to invite those who aren’t necessarily interested in church…  I’m sure the event I’m attending will be fine, but it’s not going to focus on the gospel—Jesus came, lived a perfect life to die for our sins, and He rose from the dead—which changes everything!  Who are you inviting?  The person may be expecting, waiting, and willing if only we will just do it!

The title of my sermon Easter is literally that it changes everything!  Why?  Because it’s been my experience, the experience of millions, that HE does!  It’s in Jesus we have hope—no matter our circumstances.  But many, many people don’t know that hope.  Let’s do this…

Until next time…
