WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
WORD FOR TODAY. CJMLet love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to HOSPITALITY. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Romans 12:9-1
As believers, we have a God given responsibility in the area of hospitality. In two places we find the phrase “given to hospitality” (Romans 12:13; 1 Timothy 3:2). The passage in 1 Timothy speaks of the qualifications of a bishop, but the passage in Romans identifies hospitality as a responsibility for all believers. We should be “given to hospitality.” In Titus 1:8, we find that a bishop must be “a lover of hospitality.” Just as with the command to be “given to hospitality,” it is God’s will that every believer be “a lover of hospitality.” It ought to be our joy and our purpose to spend time with others, desiring to strengthen or encourage them in some area of need.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!!
