Invite A Friend sermon video. Few people come to church the first time you invite them. People are, for some reason, programmed to say no when invited to church. Most of us said no the first time we were invited. So, realize you are beginning a process. Don’t give up. Every time you see them, mention something about church. It could take years. Remember, one day they will need God. When that day comes, you want to be the first person who comes into their mind.

Scriptures: Matthew 28:19-20; John 1:43-45; John 1:46; John 1:47-51; Ephesians 3:10-11

Church people migrate to a praise and worship service focused on keeping people and forget about reaching people. Someone will say, “We need to sing more songs.” Or, “Why can’t we do more ‘spiritual things?” “Why don’t we let the Spirit move?” One thing I always notice is those who say this aren’t reaching anyone. I want to help you so you can tell them. Imagine you (specifically you) finally get a person to come you’ve been inviting. They really need God. Their life is a mess, or their marriage is a mess, or children, or finances. You look up one day and they’re here. You’re excited and show them around. You suddenly notice the paper on the floor, doughnut crumbs, and children running. Your friend sits with you. We begin with our loudness. About the end of the second song, you notice your guest(s) is looking around and isn’t into it like you. In fact you’re not into it as you usually are. You find yourself a little more sedated for some reason. They don’t know the words to the songs. They’re in a new environment and a little uncomfortable. (continue sermon notes)
