An Easter Invitation
By: Rick Boxx
March 28, 2013
According to a 2008 Gallup poll, 41% of people surveyed claim to attend church somewhat regularly, but on Easter the number spikes to over 60%. Although the tradition will likely diminish as more people are raised without church, it’s still a great opportunity for outreach.
If an additional 20% of the population is open the week of Easter to attending church, this leaves a great opening for Christians in the workplace. Your evangelistic efforts might have been brushed off in the past, but this week of Easter they might produce fruit.
Jesus told a parable about inviting others into the Kingdom of God. In Matthew 22:9-10 He said, “Go to the street cornersand invite to the banquet anyone you find.”
This Easter take a chance. Invite your co-workers to church.
