“Then go into the country lanes and shaded hedge rows. Urge people to come. I want my house to be full.” Luke 14:24
What kind of intensity and intentionality comes through when I share the gospel? What would motivate me to “urge people to come?”
Urge people to come. Heaven is glorious.
Urge people to come. Hell is horrible.
Urge people to come. Time is short.
Urge people to come. Love conquers all.
Urge people to come. Purpose is discovered.
Urge people to come. Grace is amazing.
Urge people to come. Jesus is the answer.
Urge people to come. That My house may be full.
God wants His house to be full. And by that, I think He means more that merely a packed Sunday morning worship service. As a friend says, if you want a packed house, light poodles on fire and juggle them. It’s got to be about more than seating capacity.
God is inviting. Wooing. Drawing.
He wants a family. He adopts us as His own. He is making a home.
When does a house become a home? Fill it with strangers, it’s just a room. Fill it with family, with love, with acceptance, with purpose, and it becomes a home.
What makes a church house a church home? Fill it with family, with love, with acceptance, with purpose, and it becomes a home.
That’s something worth inviting, even urging, others to be a part of!
