Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
– Hebrews 13:3, NIV
Text: John 4:1-30, Hebrews 13:1-3
Let us take a moment to reflect on John 4- the scene at the well…
“Jesus saw—really saw— the Samaritan woman as she came to draw water. He took time to talk—really talk— to her about what mattered in her life. He made her feel welcomed, cared for, known.”
“When we feel known, it changes who we are.”
Jesus modeled it for us in the Bible, and how we host, how we love, should be a direct reflection. “Isn’t that true hospitality? Putting yourself in their place, loving them for who they are, and inviting them into the safe place of friendship.” Plain and simple… Biblical hospitality is a demonstration of love. Food and other elements are merely tools used to express our love for Gods people.
God has beautifully designed each one of us to be His Ambassadors- his hands and feet to carry His love to those around us. His Great Commission (Matt.18:20) was given to every one of us, young and old, every mother, father, and child. There is a harvest field ripe within our own back yards. It is a lost and dying world out there waiting to be known.
