Delivering the Invitation

In mission the image we have been given for most Christians is the one of an evangelist salesperson where we persuade people for Christ. But I think a much better metaphor would be to compare us to a Postie. Someone who delivers an invitation. A postie is not responsible for the reaction of the person receiving the invitation. They are just asked to deliver the invitation. Jesus said ‘I only do what I see my Father doing’. Even Jesus was delivering his father’s invitation. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
