One of my students sent the following invitation to me in an email. Some may find it a little cutesy, but the theology, and more importantly the sentiments, are perfect! (Thanks Stacy.)

A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!
Guest of Honor: Jesus Christ
Date: Every day. Traditionally, December 25th, but He’s always around, so the date is flexible…
Time: Whenever you’re ready. (Please don’t be late, though, or you’ll miss out on all the fun!)
Place: In your heart…He’ll meet you there. (You’ll hear Him knock.)
Attire: Come as you are…grubbies are okay. He’ll be washing our clothes anyway. He said something about new white robes and crowns for everyone who stays till the last.
Tickets: Admission is free. He’s already paid for everyone! (He says you wouldn’t have been able to afford it anyway—it cost Him everything He had. But you do need to accept the ticket!)
Refreshments: New wine, bread, and a far-out drink He calls “Living Water,” followed by a supper that promises to be out of this world!
Gift Suggestions: Your life. He’s one of those people who already has everything else. (He’s very generous in return though. Just wait until you see what He has for you!)
Entertainment: Joy, Peace, Truth, Light, Life, Love, Real Happiness, Communion with God, Forgiveness, Miracles, Healing, Power, Eternity in Paradise, Contentment, and much more! (All “G” rated, so bring your family and friends.)
R.S.V.P. Very Important!
He must know ahead so He can reserve a spot for you at the table. Also, He’s keeping a list of His friends for future reference. He calls it the “Lamb’s Book of Life.”
Party being given by His Kids (that’s us)! Hope to see you there!
