"Welcome him then, in the Lord with all joy, and honor such people." Philippians 2:29
How crazy is it to show hospitality and kindness to "those kinds" of people?
Seeing family within the congregation
"My son Timothy"
- Welcoming a Christian brother or sister is like welcoming Christ.
"Your apostle Epaphroditus"
- A hero of the faith for his willingness to give of himself for Christ
The discipline of joyful hospitality
- Hospitality can seem more like a test of our patience than a practice of growing closer to God
