You Before Me
Sep 09 2018 • Greg Boyd, Osheta Moore, Shawna Boren
“Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it” (Hebrews 13:1-2). The Bible tells us that hospitality is a natural outflow of the agape-love command of Jesus. God went to the furthest extreme possible to welcome us as former foreigners into his household. And then he tells us, “Go and do likewise.” Far from just being about putting on a nice event, Kingdom hospitality is a way of life and a condition of the heart. During You Before Me, we’ll explore Kingdom hospitality and ways that we can be a welcoming presence in an often lonely and isolated world.

In this second installment of our hospitality centered sermon series You Before Me, Shawna explores how welcoming the Other is not just a mindset, but also a condition of the heart. This continual welcoming and intentional making space for the Other in our lives can only happen when we have a surrendered heart that has first made space for God to dwell in us.
