The Great Commission’s basic command is “Go!” Christians today are looking for methods of taking the gospel outside the church building to where the lost are. That’s exactly what we should be doing. But let’s remember that Jesus also said, “Come.” In some circles inviting people to church is considered an inferior method of evangelism. But the church is the body of Christ. If we’re living and loving as the church should, then inviting unbelievers to our assemblies is welcoming them into the presence of Jesus Christ.
