Neighbors Make a Difference

As we complete the week of VBS I have been reminded of the influence of neighbors.  Many of the children present have come because a “neighbor” invited them.  Not necessarily someone who lives next to their house, although that has happened, but someone who was willing to be a “neighbor”, as Jesus explained by the story of the Good Samaritan.  People who love and care about those around them, and see their wounds and want to take them to a place where healing can begin – that is being neighborly.  Twice in the last week, I have been told about people who are adult believers, that came to Christ because a neighbor during their childhood began inviting them to church.  What would happen if every member of CHBC took the opportunity to act in a neighborly way toward the lost people in their families, in their workplaces, in restaurants, in coffee shops, and yes, in their neighborhoods?  Would you commit with me to be faithful in being present at church, and in being a neighbor that makes a difference?

Just Ask

Wednesday we sent out an article from Lifeway about the importance of doing the simple task of inviting people to bring their children to VBS.  Surveys tell us that a majority of people will attend church or church related activities if just invited, especially if invited by a friend.  That is not just true for VBS, but also for Sunday School and worship services.  If you have seen a great movie, you tell people about it.  When you are going to the big game, you are asking your friends if they are going also.  I wonder if our friends wonder why we attend church, but never ask them to go.  Do you think they may believe that movies and sports are something we really love and are passionate about, but that church is something we do kind of like taking out our trash?  It is necessary, and it is helpful, but it is not something you walk around talking about.  Christian, it is not only important that you make regularly gathering with the body of Christ a priority, but you should be inviting your unchurched family and friends to attend.  Even if they have gone in the past, or sometimes go to worship, your personal invitation may be the difference this Sunday between them staying home or attending Sunday School and worship.  Just ask.
