Hospitality Begins with Love
2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers[a] came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
5 Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, 6 who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. 7 For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
3 John 1:2-8

    The exiles...were not showing deliverate hatred against the Babylonians, far less their babies. They were asking that they should suffer total war as they had so often waged it.

    Psalm 133
    Series: Psalms
    1 Behold, how good and pleasant it is
       when brothers dwell in unity![a]
    2 It is like the precious oil on the head,
       running down on the beard,
       on the beard of Aaron,
       running down on the collar of his robes!
    3 It is like the dew of Hermon,
       which falls on the mountains of Zion!
       For there the Lord has commanded the blessing,
       life forevermore.

    Series: Vitals
    We talk about the Fruit of the Spirit...about the Spirit producing fruit in our lives and I don't think its an accident. What the Holy Spirit does in us is often an unseen growth. It is slow. This is what this life by the Holy Spirit is like and my prayer for you and I is that we would see how strong it actually becomes, just like the mind of Christ.

    Series: Vitals
    To be eager is to have a relaxed obedience while engaging the world. Ultimately we are invited into the life of God as he is restoring all things around us.
    "The really good news for humanity is that Jesus is now taking students in the master class of life." - Dallas Willard

    Advent in Wholeness
    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his poem "Who am I?" asks:
     
    Who am I? This or the Other?
    Am I one person today and tomorrow another?
    Am I both at once? A hypocrite before others,
    And before myself a contemptible woebegone weakling?
    Or is something within me still like a beaten army
    Fleeing in disorder from victory already achieved?
     
    In our state of dis-integration, with our divided selves, we try to pick through the pieces to put the best one forward but so often it confuses us and we end up asking the question, "Who am I?"
     
    So Bonhoeffer concludes the matter like this, "Whoever I am, you know, Oh God, I am yours."
