Since I can’t bake you a pie and whisk you off to my screened porch for a good cup of a coffee and a long chat, this ebook is the next best thing.
This work is born out of heartache. When we lost our house to fire 2 years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d ever recover.
I sat in our driveway and watched our dreams burn to the ground.
I grieved so many things and felt loss like I’d never known.
I cried out for answers. Why us? Why this?
But our suffering isn’t lost on our Father. It’s only His grace in disguise.
And He will twist every heartache into joy.
While we worked hard to rebuild the bricks and mortar, He went to work on our stone hearts.
The truth is, we don’t have to lose everything to feel our poverty. We sense it in the depths of our souls.
It’s all just rubble. And our card houses teeter on disaster. We’re all a mess, house fire or not.
We know we need someone——-someone who knows us and loves us in spite of ourselves.
That is the hospitality of scripture.
That is the warm welcome we receive from Christ himself.
Hospitality isn’t about inviting people into our perfect homes, it’s about inviting them into our imperfect hearts.
It’s about learning to live from that vulnerable place where we open ourselves to love.
And ultimately, it’s about Him—-The perfect Host who provides for everything we sinners need, right down to the best wine for the wedding feast.
This ebook is for anyone who has felt his own poverty and known the redemption of being loved anyway.
This is hospitality, on purpose.
