Jesus spent a chunk of his ministry eating and drinking with the "e;sinners and tax collectors"e; of the world. If we strive to be more like Jesus, shouldn't we do more of what he did?Hospitality involves more than the domesticated event we have grown accustomed to practicing. It is an embodiment of all the Christian life stands for: a gesture of love, opening up our hearts and lives, and sacrificing luxury and security for the chance to display God's glory. To receive hospitality from others is an invitation to receive God's transformative power to work in their lives.Readers will ask themselves these questions:• What is hospitality? • Is it something I am, or something I do? • How do I offer my life as a gesture of hospitality? • What are some practical ways for me to display and receive hospitality?
