Don't just invite a friend, bring a friend! This is a bible principle illustrated by Jesus and His disciples. Jesus found Andrew, and Andrew went out and brought his brother, Simon, to Jesus! As followers of Jesus we ought to be seeking others to bring them to Jesus. Friend Sunday is a wonderful reminder to invite and bring our friends to church!
