Invite Your Peeps to Christmas Eve Service

Blog - Feature - Invite Your Peeps to Christmas Eve Service

First of all pray. Pray for the Spirit’s power not your own. Pray for courage. Pray for effective words, delivery and timing.  A great launching passage for your prayer on this is 1 Timothy 2:1-4

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. this is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

I assure you that after you’ve experienced the Gospel clearly proclaimed at these Christmas Eve services you’ll wish you’d invited all your peeps if you didn’t.

Basically, we all need to be “brave” and just do this!  Here are some ideas:

  • Don’t miss your extended family peeps!…
  • or your “yarnology”, hunting, fishing, golfing, broom-ball, workout, table game, softball, boating, corn-hole, dart throwing, wine tasting, pool shooting, clay pigeon shooting, etc peeps…
  • or your restaurant server, mail, paper delivery, UPS/FedEx, gas station, coffee shop, Walmart greeter, police who gave you a warning or not, garbage collector, etc peeps…
  • or your fellow employees, venders, customers, etc peeps…
  • or your front, back, next, below, above door neighbor peeps…
  • or your facebook, twitter, messenger, phone contact, etc peeps…
  • or…your turn….

Use the tickets you’ve gotten from PV.  Use the world wide web. Use your wireless mobile devices. Use your feet and mouth.  Use your outside voice!  Shout it from the house and bluff tops!

One Biblical passage to act on in light of this invite opportunity is 1 Corinthians 3:5-9

“What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe – as the Lord has assigned to each his or her task.  I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. So neither he who plants or he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.”

Lets do this!
