Invitation a long term project

I recently met one of Australia’s finest exponents of serial inviting. This serial inviter commented about a person they were regularly inviting “They are a 10 year project or that other person is a 15 year project!” What they mean is that it is going to take 10 or 15 years for them to accept an invitation to take a closer look at Christ. Serial Inviters are in it for the long haul. But one of the best one liners in invitation I have ever heard came from one of the best serial inviters. He stated the following to someone.  “I have been inviting you to church for a few years now and you will end up coming when  you are in a box (coffin) anyway so you may as well come now.” Completely politically incorrect but somehow he gets away with it! We possible don’t need to go that far but consider inviting someone today to take a closer look at Christ and His church.
