Coffee Talk Topic: Open Door Living
Open Door Living means to live in a posture of Hospitality as an act of service, to glorify God everywhere you are.
The definition of the word hospitality means the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers.
I bet the first thing that comes to mind is about hosting guests in your home. This is one way to do it, but it’s not the only way. Paul was talking about hospitality as exemplified in Christ.”
Featured Guest: Jen Schmidt
Jen Schmidt is a popular speaker, worship leader and founder of the annual Becoming Conference. Balancing Beauty and Bedlam is a blog Jen created to encourage and challenge women to embrace both the beauty and bedlam of their everyday lives.
In her latest book, Just Open the Door, Jen tackles hospitality as an act of Worship.
Jen says “worship is any act that brings pleasure to God. It’s any act aimed at His glory. Hospitality, in the true sense of service, is an act of worship and surrender. It’s an opportunity we have for Christian discipleship and evangelism.
I look at Jesus as the hospitality guru. He is the Master of all things welcome. Jesus walked a road of welcome and invited people wherever He was at.”
