Power of Invitation Evangelism – sermon video audio notes – Most of us have used the invitation evangelism style along our journey. Nothing energizes us more than getting someone to come to church with us. Did we use the invitation to share what Jesus had done for us?

The Power of Invitation Evangelism
Scriptures: John 4:4-9, Luke 9:55-56, Galatians 3:27-28, John 4:16-38, Acts 1:8

It was simply that to get from point A to point C, he needed to go through point B. Jesus simply needed to go through Samaria to get to Galilee. It was the normal route. Jesus passed through Samaria frequently (Luk 9:52; 17:11; John 4). So much so that he told a parable about the journey (Luk 10:33). (continue sermon notes)
