The mission Jesus gave his first century disciples was found in Acts 1:8 “and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
When Jesus told this to his followers, they were in Jerusalem. Here’s the principle; you start at home with the people closest to you. Jesus once healed a demon possessed man and after He did the man wanted to leave his home and come with Jesus but Jesus said no.
He said, "’Go back home and tell those people how much God has done for you.’ So the man went all over town telling how much Jesus had done for him." (LK 8:39)
So where are you to start? Right at home, by inviting to church the people you are closest to. Go to your friends, your family, coworkers, neighbors, the person who serves you coffee. Surveys tell us that people all around us are spiritually hungry. A recent Gallup survey revealed that over 100 million Americans have no church home, but 50 million of them said they would attend if somebody would just invite them! Within ½ hour travel time of Celebration Community Church there are 23,000 unchurched people who are just waiting for an invitation.
Who in your Jerusalem will you be inviting to church this Sunday.
Remember: “An empty chair is a serious matter”
