Do you ever invite your neighbors to come to church with you? You watch their house while they are away for a few days, you talk with them when you see them in the yard, your kids attend the same school and you wave at them on your way to work. But, have you ever invited them to come to church with you?
Acts 1:8 tells us that we have been empowered to be His witnesses and yet many people have not invited their neighbors to come to church with them. Maybe more regretful is that many believers today do not even know their neighbors. We are away from home most of the day – leaving the house in our cars and returning after work the same way. We are tired, have things that need to be accomplished, and so hurry inside as soon as we have parked and do not even come to know our neighbors. And, if we do, it is often on only a superficial level.
