I visited a local restaurant at the invitation of a friend in ministry. He sent me a text and invited me to join him for what he promised to be a great lunch – both food quality and service – at a place he’d discovered. I was intrigued and said yes.
The experience did not disappoint!
I would not have known about this restaurant if my friend had not invited me to join him there. I had not heard of this restaurant, nor did I know anyone who had eaten there. Now, it is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I’ll be there this week on Cinco de Mayo!
In a recent survey by Lifeway Research, an old truth about Bible study groups emerged once again: the number one reason people visit a Bible study group is because of an invitation. It’s just that simple.
