Let us, with love

Romans 12:9-13

So many people are asking what we want to do, but maybe the more important question is who do we want to be? Jordan Allen encourages us to be people who love our community through simple acts of hospitality and generosity in our everyday lives. Because we have received love from our Savior, we can love others as we point them to Him.

Let love be without hypocrisy. Detest evil; cling to what is good. Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Take the lead in honoring one another. Do not lack diligence in zeal; be fervent in the Spirit; serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer. Share with the saints in their needs; pursue hospitality.

Romans 12:9-13
If we’re going to be people known by our love, we must resist what is not.
Through Jesus, sin and suffering and death will no longer have the last word.
“Generosity creates the family that it believes in.” – Henri Nouwen
“[a host] gives them a friendly space, where they may feel free to come and go, to be close and distant, to rest and to play, to talk and to be silent, to eat and to fast. The paradox indeed is that hospitality asks for the creation of an empty space where the guest can find his own soul.” – Henri Nouwen
“The gospel is the good news that God’s kingdom has come near in Jesus Christ, and through his life, death, resurrection, and enthronement, the powers of sin & death no longer have the last word.” – Rich Villodas
