Invitational Adversity

In inviting people in our congregation to invite we should not sidestep difficulties they will face. We are in fact marked and can bear scars created by the challenges we face. Ask Joseph who spent years in a prison. But we should be preparing congregational members to meet the challenges well, not shielding them. Because we can find opportunities wrapped in adversity. Consider it joy when you face trials…Adversity is natural and consistent.  By encouraging people to invite we provide an education in the kingdom of God. The Latin word Educo from which we get education is to bring forth  potential. Invite someone today to invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church and we might help with their education in the kingdom of God and the opportunities in the midst of adversity.
