Embracing Hospitality and Building Relationships
In Romans 12, Paul instructs believers to share in the needs of the saints and pursue hospitality. This is the same call for believers today—to help care for the people in our communities and show Christlike love through hospitality. But what does this actually look like in our various cultural contexts and seasons of life?In this episode of Glo, Blair Linne, Aixa de López, Sharon Dickens, and Soojin Park delve into the biblical foundations of hospitality and its distinction from mere entertainment. They discuss how hospitality is a form of worship and why financial limitations should not hinder our gracious care toward others. The hosts also share personal examples of what hospitality looks like in their own unique backgrounds. This conversation reminds us that we can all show Christ's love through the practice of hospitality, no matter where we are in the world.Episode time stamps:Share with the saints in their needs (0:00)What is biblical hospitality?
