5 Key Connections: Hospitality, Sovereignty

October 17, 2019

Here are 5 key passages from recent Christian content around the web, including one on how we can share God’s love through hospitality and another on resting in God’s sovereignty.

How to Share God’s Love through Hospitality (William Boekestein, Core Christianity)

One of the best ways to show unchurched friends, family members, and neighbors, that you love them is to tell them that they are wanted at your church. It isn’t a club designed to keep outsiders away but a universal family of God.

Resting in God’s Sovereignty over My Anxiety (Laura Elliot, Revive Our Hearts)

My trials—my anxiety and depression—are a part of the fire that God is using to purify, strengthen, and test my faith, the outcome of which, my sanctification, will result in praise and glory of my Savior! How precious a gift . . .

How Can I Know God? (Colin Smith, Unlocking the Bible)

John is telling you that if you get to know Jesus Christ, you have truly come to know the living God, who no one has ever seen. John’s Gospel was written so that you may know that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name (John 20:31).

Why We Need The Law (Jen Oshman, GCD)

Without the law, we are prone to believe that we are sin-free. But with the law, we are crushed. We realize that, on our own, we are ruined. We see that, in our own power, we will never be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect.

But the law is not meant to leave us hopeless and helpless.

11 Powerful Ways Every Single Believer Can Glorify God (Mark Altrogge, the blazing center)

I believe the primary reason he creates us and then saves us is for his glory. And he is not some vain, self-centered God who just wants all the glory. The more we see and know God’s glory and give him glory, the more joy we experience in him.
