Invitational Trials and Tribulations
If you are experiencing a lot of resistance and setbacks as you become invitational, try to see this as in fact something that is quite positive and productive. In physical exercise, resistance is a way to make your body stronger, and it is the same with the mind. You must see every setback, failure or hardship as a trial along the way, as seeds that are being planted for further cultivation. Join with the Apostle Paul after despairing for his life in saying “But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead” Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and His church and he bless you with a trial!
