"they don't rank" as top priority some days. This series has been as good for me, as I hope it's been for you.
Today, I want us to begin thinking about our homes, the places we live, because truly "in this inhospitable world a Christian home is a miracle to be shared." -Karen Mains, Open Heart Open Home
God has blessed us with His Holy Spirit, with spiritual gifts, and with homes and wealth beyond the imaginings of most people in the world. The least we can do is offer them back to Him as our act of worship. This is not my family, nor my home, nor my money... they are His! And He may do with them as He sees fit. I am merely a vessel of blessing through which He can reach a dying world.
So, today, will you dedicate your home, your family and your possessions to Him? Maybe you need to physically walk the halls of your home and turn each room, each member of your family over to His care. Will you set aside time to cultivate a habit of hospitality?
Get ready, we're going to be looking at a few practical ways you can bless the nations right from your home! Open that door, shake out the welcome mat and straighten those couch cushions! We're opening up that sphere of influence this week!
I'm thankful this week for:
- this home with a wide open door
- these kids who love welcoming guests
- my husband who makes it possible
- food on the table
- beds to sleep in
- a gorgeous view
- an oval table that can always squeeze in one more
- a roof over our heads
