What’s Your View?

I recently shared some thoughts on biblical hospitality and the opportunity it provides to live the gospel. Gospel-living isn’t always easy. It’s sacrificial, it can be messy and scary, but it can also be life-giving to both the giver and the receiver. 1 Peter 4:9 says, “Offer hospitality to one

Faced with the pain, anguish, and torture of the cross, He cried out, “Abba, Father, everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will” (Mark 14:36). He made this urgent, passionate request not once but three times. And yet, God refused to take the cup away. And Jesus submitted to His will.
