People who have experienced Jesus’ gracious hospitality, should extend the same type of gracious hospitality. If you’ve experienced it, you should extend it. Don’t always think of mission as extraordinary. Jesus talked about having dinner with people here. He didn’t start a program, a school, or have a crusade. He ate meals. Don’t be a “weird Christian.” “Now I want to talk to you about the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Here is a Testa-mint, now listen.” No! Be genuine. Talk about grace. Tell your story. Ask questions about them. Look for common interests. Serve them. May God help us show grace in ways that reflect the grace that we have received in Jesus.
