Anticipation is a wonderful gift from God. It almost doubles the pleasure, especially when we anticipate some particular food, such as a juicy steak or in my case something like spaghetti carbonari. We can anticipate going to a musical or a sporting event. Our pets are wonderful examples in the area of anticipation. But I have to tell you that there is a dark side to anticipation I have discovered that in invitation we can anticipate a terrible outcome which triggers vulnerability in us and stops us from inviting. Today I want us to anticipate a Godly outcome to an invitation and invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and His church.
