"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though
God were making his appeal through us."
(2 CORINTHIANS 5:20)
Our world is teeming with exhausted, broken, lonely souls starving for fellowship, relationship and healing. Jesus understood the importance of hospitality. Throughout His ministry, He reached out to say, “Come, rest; let me ease your burden, give you peace and feed you…I am the Bread of Life.” His treatment of those who came to Him in need was always welcoming, generous and humble…and it was healing!
The hospitality Jesus modeled begins with allowing Him to heal and be at home in our own hearts. Then His grace flows out of us in many ways. God’s Word is our guide, the Holy Spirit our teacher. Opportunities to be His hands and feet in a heartsick world are endless.
