hospitality1.jpgOne thing I will take with me from the BASICS conference actually came during the Q & A time.  Voddie Baucham was asked, “How can pastors do the work of the evangelist with all the other pressures and responsibilities they have?”  I was somewhat surprised with his answer as he said in one word, “Hospitality.”   Hospitality in our homes can be a powerful witness to unbelievers as they see us serve one another in love.  Often I forget that a marriage centered on Christ and parenting done according to God’s design can help point people to the gospel.  It can open up bridges to share out of our weakness to display God’s strength in Christ.  And it can be one of the greatest ways we can practically live out Matthew 5:16 which says, “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
