Priority, Passion, and Persuasion
The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. John 1:41-42
When we discover something truly life-changing, what do we do? We tell others! We tell others about a new restaurant, hobbies, or a new diet. Our priority, passion, and persuasion rise to new levels of effectiveness.
In today’s scripture, that is exactly what happened to Andrew after spending quality time with Jesus. Andrew’s priorities changed as everything else became trivial. Andrew’s passion for his brother, Peter, changed as he immediately looked for him. And Andrew’s persuasion was very effective as he had zero pushback when he brought Peter to Jesus.
Palm Sunday is next week, which means Easter is right around the corner. We have the opportunity to tell others about the One who has changed our lives. And Easter is an easy invite! Make it a priority to passionately persuade and invite everyone in your sphere of influence to join our Easter Celebration here at Fellowship Church! You can be confident, knowing that your invitation can lead to a conversation that will bring a transformation that can change their eternal destination!
Starting this week set a recurring alarm for 1pm on your phone and pray for one person you can invite to church for Easter!
God, place someone on my heart that I can boldly invite to church this Easter. I am confident that those I invite will have a life-changing experience. Use me to be a living, breathing invitation to those I connect with this week. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
