It all begins with an invitation. Jesus changed lives, not just through healing and miracles, but by inviting people into relationship with himself. By inviting his disciples to follow him, Jesus addressed some of the deepest questions of life—do I have a place to belong? Will people love me for who I am? Will people accept me with all my flaws? Do I have a deeper purpose in life? We also see that the power of invitation is contagious. Jesus extends an invitation to his disciples, and they extend an invitation to others.
