5. Sharing Our Lives
As members of God’s household, we are called to take care of one another. We spend time in each other’s homes sharing meals, sharing our joys and sorrows, sharing responsibility for each other’s needs, confessing sins to one another, and praying for one another. We are particularly committed to caring for the poor, the weak, the sick, the stranger, the persecuted, the fatherless, and the widow in our midst. This commitment to hospitality also extends outside the church to our families, neighbors, and coworkers, whom we hope and pray will also be adopted by God into His household, especially as we proclaim the truth of God’s Word to them.
2 Corinthians 1:7“Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.”
Galatians 6:10“While we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”
1 Peter 4:9“Be hospitable to one another without complaint.”
