Living Invitations 3

May 14, 2017

We are including a re-cap of our weekly sermons here on Online Ministry Training. This week we talked about hospitality. The Greek word translated “hospitality” means “love of strangers”. The “hospitality” we are talking about is all about loving others through Christ and making people feel special. But it must be sincere. It must be genuine. If it is phony it won’t be effective. It is certainly our hope that through our “hospitality” people will ultimately come to know Jesus, but it cannot be a requirement. We need to love people regardless of how they respond. Love must be sincere.

Romans 12:9-13 (NIV)
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
