Welcome Home

April 29, 2024 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Don’t neglect to show hospitality, for by doing this some have welcomed angels as guests without knowing it. —Hebrews 13:2

“Hospitality” isn’t a special gift or calling for a few believers who love throwing parties. Nor does it require having a fancy house, a big budget, or an impressive spread of food.

The goal of hospitality is to humbly serve Christ by serving others. You’re not trying to impress or perform but simply to welcome friends into a home where the gospel is evident in the mood, conduct, and conversation of those who live there.

Christian hospitality is a way to be involved in others’ spiritual transformation at a practical level, participating with God in showering grace in their direction. It’s a mandate that flows out of being recipients of His grace and having been invited to live forever in the home Christ is preparing for us.

To invite people into your home for a simple meal, along with generous servings of conversation, prayer, and love, is to remember what your home is all about—a God-given tool for service and ministry, for cultivating life and sharing grace.
