God Loves Outsiders, And So Should You

Oct 31, 2021

There are many commands throughout the Bible to love our neighbors, show hospitality, and be a friend to strangers. Why is this such an important part of following God? In this message, we explore the "why" behind God's command to practice hospitality. The message focuses on Deuteronomy 10:12-22, where God teaches Israel to care for the orphans, widows, and foreigners that will be residing in their new homeland inside the Promised Land. What we find is a powerful call to love our neighbors that is rooted in God's compassionate character, our empathy towards our fellow man, and a desire to pay God's blessings forward after everything he's done for us.
