HOSPITALITY


There are no set rules on how to do hospitality; however, the early church met regularly in their homes, as do most around the world. They took care of each other's needs as a way of life. Many were fleeing persecution in one city and would find believers in the next.


The early church became family out of necessity. They learned to serve each other; not only the local church but those in other cities who were in need. I want My Body to see the big picture and to take care of each other. Those that have much in this world must take care of those in the body who have little.


I have put you together with others in each congregation or family with gifts to share with each other. There are no lone rangers in My Kingdom. It is imperative to stay connected to the Body. This is an age where so many are disconnected from true fellowship. Reach out to others and bring them into fellowship with you. You may even find yourself entertaining My angels unawares. Pay attention to My Spirit who will lead you, and obey the prompting of My still small voice.


Acts 2:42 New Living Translation (NLT)

All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.

1 Peter 4:9-10 New Living Translation (NLT)

9 Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.


Hebrews 10:24-25 The Voice (VOICE)

24 Let us consider how to inspire each other to greater love and to righteous deeds, 25 not forgetting to gather as a community, as some have forgotten, but encouraging each other, especially as the day of His return approaches.

Hebrews 13:1-2 The Voice (VOICE)

1 Let love continue among you.

2 Don’t forget to extend your hospitality to all—even to strangers—for as you know, some have unknowingly shown kindness to heavenly messengers in this way.
