Many people sum up the Christian life as something they do, a list of rules they keep or even a certain set of beliefs. However, at its foundation following Jesus is an invitation. It is something that starts with God, not us.
We love invitations because they tell us we belong. They tell us that someone wants our presence. And that is what following Jesus is. An invitation.
What if, instead of seeing faith as what we do, we saw it as a response to what has been done?
In Hebrews chapter 4 there is a phrase used over and over that says, "Let us...", which shows us the invitation that God has for us.
