Scripture tells all Christians to be hospitable – but for those of us in the service of the truth, it is a crucial matter! When we are kind, hospitable, accommodating to others who also adhere to the truth of Christ, bonds are formed that help the truth move forward. It is necessary, then, that we know why people are engaged in the work they are involved in — and it is right that we verify that they are teaching the truth — that Christ is Son of God & Savior! These partnerships will help all of us to stand firm and be encouraged when so many are following evil ways.
As for me, I am praying to the Father … asking Him to teach us to listen and give us hearts that can discern the truth. Asking Him to help us to show kindness to others who are in service to the truth – to the end that we might come together for the furtherance of the truth. Asking Him to help us to understand the power of Kingdom partnership & prepare us to welcome His servants and to receive partnerships that He may send our way!
Kindnesses shown to co-laborers of the gospel are necessary … so that partnerships that build the Kingdom of God might be strengthened.
