The Gift of Invitation: 7 Ways Jesus Invites You to a Life of Grace
In The Gift of Invitation, you will:
- discover seven powerful invitations Jesus extends to you, including the invitation to follow him, forgive from your heart, and know his Father’s many gifts;
- explore the Bible to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus;
- see how each invitation plays out in your own life;
- and reflect on how you can be better prepared to accept Jesus’ invitations.
Jesus is constantly inviting each of us to a more abundant life—but in order to receive that gift, we need to accept his invitation. In The Gift of Invitation, Allison Gingras explores Jesus’ invitation through her own story, sacred Scripture, and the tradition of the Church. You can record your own responses to these insights right in the journal, then bring those thoughts to your small faith-sharing group for further discussion. And as with all the Stay Connected journals, guided prayers and space to journal your own prayer helps you forge a deeper, living connection with Jesus.
The Gift of Invitation is a perfect resource for individuals or groups looking for an uplifting and faithful template for study and guided reflection and conversation. Accept Allison Gingras’ invitation to journey ever deeper into the gift of sacred scripture and find your heart longing for more!
