HumanKind Week 19: “Who Do We Welcome?”
Jesus told his people to love and bless everyone, even their enemies. Literally. Everyone. For most of us, that’s a practical impossibility, because don’t know everyone. However, as this message points out: our ability to love everyone is dependent upon our willingness to love anyone. More to the point, if Jesus teaches us to love everyone, then we must surely welcome them as well.
The story from Acts 8:26-40 where Phillip, a Jesus Follower, meets the Ethiopian official offers us some guidance. This message unpacks the lessons embedded in their compelling tale, and helps us know how we might welcome anyone to whom God leads us.
