God’s plan for everyone who professes the name of Christ, both men and women, includes hospitality. No one is exempt, from pastor to people. An open heart, open hand and open home is God’s divine design to open the hearts of people everywhere it is practiced.
Hospitality connects the heart of God and the heart of true ministry for every believer, yet something dramatic has happened in our hearts, closing the doors of our homes, causing Christianity Today to ask, “Whatever Happened to Hospitality?” What about your life? Do you have an open heart, open hand and open home to others... to strangers?
The Apostle Paul reminds we must all be “given to hospitality.” Pastors and leaders must be “lovers of hospitality.” And the Apostle Peter declared, “The end of all things is at hand... use hospitality ... without grudging.” Here is hidden power reserved by God for those who dare to practice it. It is PERSONAL, it is PRACTICAL, and it is PROPHETIC! The Power of Hospitality will change your life, your family, your congregation... yes even your city and your world if your will let it.
