Geneva, Ala (BNc) — “Wanda, I’ve come to church today because you kept inviting me,” Sue Holland said to Wanda Hensley on a recent Sunday morning. Wanda had invited Sue several times and she didn’t come, but Wanda did not stop inviting her. She kept inviting.
Sue came recently and brought her two young grandsons. She came back for the Sunday evening worship that night. When the invitation was extended, Sue went forward and asked for prayers for forgiveness of her sins. She hasn’t missed a service of the church since coming that first Sunday morning.
This writer heard Mid McKnight say during a gospel meeting, Luverne, AL years ago, that if someone had been inviting us to come to worship and we were lost and never went, on the day of judgment we would wish they had invited us just one more time.
May this serve as an encouragement for us to never stop inviting others to worship.
As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. God answered my prayer. Douglas and I will be married 56 years on December 18. He has been preaching the gospel since before we were married. We have two children and two grandchildren all of whom are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
