Marks of the True Christian
9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit,7 serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
Hospitality begins in the heart.
Part of this whole renewing my mind thing is learning how to welcome people into my heart and life. It’s been really tricky for me given the baggage I’ve been carrying around all these years. So I’m laying it down. Again.
Oh Lord my God, I want to show hospitality to everyone I meet. I want to love genuinely, to abhor evil, hold fast what is good. I want to be zealous, fervent in spirit, rejoice in hope, patient in tribulation, constant in prayer. Renew me today Jesus. Let good works pour from me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
