Apostle Grace Lubega
John 6:44(KJV); No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
We were invited to the life of the gospel, we did not invite ourselves. Like our theme scripture reveals, no man can come to Jesus except the Father draws him.
He did not invite you to a life of failure; He did not invite you to a life of struggle; He did not invite you to a life of affliction, He invited you to a life of victory.
When things invite us, everything in heaven and earth orders itself in our favour. This is why the life of salvation is easy and not difficult as many are prone to say.
Because he understood this invitation and its implications, the Apostle Paul said, ‘…Beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.’(Hebrews 6:9).
Look at the pattern of invitations in the scriptures and you will understand that they have a predetermined end in success.
Paul was invited by the Macedonian Church, they turned out to be a great support to him and his ministry(Acts 16:9).
Joseph was invited by his destiny and ended up as the Prime Minister of Egypt with the capacity to feed the entire world during a famine.
David was invited by an anointing to kingship over Israel and to this day, he is one of the greatest kings that ever ruled God’s people.
God invited you to salvation. Your journey is beautiful, your future is bright and your end is blessed. Glory to God!

PRAYER: My loving Father, I thank you for who I am and what you have made me. Thank you for the grace that drew me to you and gave me a brand new life and spirit. I rejoice in this life of salvation and with gladness, I continually draw from its wells. I know that I cannot fail because when I was invited into this life, I was invited into success. I know that I am shining brighter every other day because when I was invited into this life, I was invited to progress. To the glory of your name, Amen.
