Bible Text: 
Matthew 9:9-13

We have several obstacles that get in the way of passing the living water of salvation along to others.
Our aversion to sharing our faith is at least three-fold:
1. It seems contrived
2. We aren't sure we have a faith worth sharing
3. We risk a relationship
Mostly our intention to share our faith in Jesus remains just that: an intention without any real impact.
Sharing a meal together is a universal way of strengthening relationships and sharing everything from the latest weather report and sports scores to the deepest matters of the heart.
So, perhaps before we invite people to Jesus or to church, we should invite them to dinner. Or lunch. Or coffee. Or a cookout or tailgate or Super Bowl Party. Eating together builds the bridges, connects the pipes, allows for influence to flow back and forth between people who share a meal.
