Something just came up that I want to talk about. I wonder if people really realize what a COMPLIMENT it is when some one asks a person to join them and become a Christian. While anyone can accept Jesus Christ and give their live to him. that doesn’t just happen. You need grace and to join Christ’s church, someone has to invite you, and that has to be another Christian. Jesus needs to give you the grace and opportunity, but in order to join His Church, He has to give you the grace and another Christian has to be there to give you the opportunity to learn how to join. Christ’s Church is His people, not just an individual. Does anyone realize what a loving compliment and privilege it is to be asked?
Now, if a person is not interested, it is easy enough to say “No thank you.” Or, “Thank you for thinking of me, but not now.” This is how you would answer a person if that person offered you a box of chocolate and you are on a diet, and this is way more important, some of us believe your life may depend on it.
Now, I may have not explained this perfectly, but you will get the idea.
God bless you all.
