In the first chapter of the gospel of John, Jesus is starting to gather his disciples and finds a man named Phillip and called him to be his follower. Phillip agrees and then immediately wants to share this opportunity with his brother, Nathanael. So he goes to Nathanael and tells him that he has "found the one Moses wrote about" and encourages his brother to "come and see."
Phillip didn't keep the good news of Jesus to himself. And he didn't just try to explain Jesus as an idea. He invited his brother to come and see for himself, to experience what he had experienced. He hoped and prayed that when Nathanael experienced the same love and grace and truth that he had seen...he would also be changed.
In a few weeks (September 11), we are challenging our whole church family (including you) to invite someone to "come and see" what a church service is like here at Six Points. We want them to experience what you experience. To sing, to read scripture, to be welcomed and to hear the name of Jesus proclaimed. Will you, like Phillip, go the extra mile and share the good news with someone you love and invite them to join you? Don't you want them to see for themselves?
Take the challenge! Invite a friend to "come and see" on Sunday, September 11 on our Invite a Friend Sunday.
