A Place Where People Thrive

Oct 17, 2021

When you think of hospitality, what comes to mind? A hospital? The "hospitality industry" (like hotels and motels)? Or maybe you think of dinner at grandma's house, where everyone gathered around the table and was always welcomed with open arms.

Biblical hospitality is an attitude that starts in our hearts that is expressed in the way we treat people, especially people we might normally consider "outsiders." This series will explore how and why every Christian is called to practice hospitality--the ministry of being a gracious host to everyone we meet.

This first message introduces the idea of hospitality and focuses on the parable of the seeds and soils from Matthew 13. Bryan challenges us to ask two tough questions: Are we giving a warm welcome to Jesus and the Gospel message? And are we showing hospitality to people who are seeking Jesus?
