Complete The Circuit of God’s Love
Hospitality is a core value of the Gospel, and of our mission at Cold Spring Church. Hospitality is extending care and authentic welcome to guests, visitors, and strangers. As we continue to discern a new reality in our Covid-19 pandemic world, we have extended hospitality to others through acts of kindness, given donations of food and money, and countless other ways. Our nation needs a blessing that will come when we stand with and for those who have been abused, those who have been denied justice, been subject to violence, whose freedoms have been neglected. This week, we will learn about the “prophet’s reward” recorded in Matthew 10 when Jesus urged his listeners not only to be generous in hospitality, giving even a cup of water to a child, but to receive the ministry and gifts of others, others who may be different than us, think differently than we do, and who may invite us to reconsider our assumptions and reset our expectations. We will hear from Amos the prophet who makes God’s shares what God is looking for us to express in our hospitality. When we complete the circuit of God’s love, giving and receiving what Jesus sends us, we will receive the prophet’s reward, a blessing of peace and hope. And we all need that!
