Hospitality is a crucial element in building Christian community. Hospitality may well be the best means we have to promote close, brotherly love. It is especially important in churches where people really don't know each other or where relationships are superficial, Sunday-morning-only relationships.
Hospitality in an effective tool for evangelism. Showing Christ's love to others in a home environment may be the only means Christians have to reach their neighbors for Christ. A Christian home can be a lighthouse for God in a spiritually dark neighborhood.
Hospitality is a great way to serve the Lord's people and for Christians to use their spiritual gifts. By opening their homes, Christians can discover a practical and effective means of serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hospitality is a biblical command. Many Christians do not realize what the New Testament teaches about hospitality and what it can do for the local church.
