Serving the Lord in the Home

“Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.” Romans 12:1313Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. (Romans 12:13)
“Use hospitality one to another without grudging.” 1 Peter 4:9
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8
Have you been wanting to have company or do something for the Lord, but you aren’t sure if you should because of finances? 2 Corinthians 9:8 has been a help to my husband and myself. We never let money be the deciding factor in trying to serve the Lord, and the Lord has been as good as His Word. If you feel the Lord wants you to do something for Him, do it. Someone once said that God’s service done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. Go forward, counting on Him. “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:1919But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)).
Hospitality gives us the opportunity to serve the Lord’s people and encourage them. Differences and sometimes hard feelings disappear or at least are smoothed over when we eat and fellowship at the same table. As wives and mothers we can serve the Lord and His people in this way.
