In A Pinch

Matthew 7:13-14


Synopsis: We all know a pinch when we feel one.  Pinches, for whatever reason, hurt and therefore, get our attention.  What we do next reveals what lessons we learned from the experience.

      There are a lot of situations in life that pinch us.  Sometimes we use those situations as an adjective to describe the pinch.  Have you ever been in a “financial” pinch?  Did you learn anything from the experience?

      “Life” pinches cause us to make decisions if for no other reason than we just simply cannot go on.  Health issues, financial issues, spiritual issues are just a few is the situations in life that put the pinch on our lifestyle and call for a course correction.

Hospitality in the Biblical Tradition

1 Peter 4:7-9


Synopsis: Today I start a short series on hospitality.  I start with Hospitality in the Biblical Tradition with references pulled from Genesis to Revelation.  Hospitality is a true characteristic of God’s people found in both Testaments.  It requires believers to “make room” for the stranger as well as fellow believers.  Indeed, hospitality is a matter of the heart before it is a matter of a place at the table.


Scripture Text (NLT): Hebrews 13:1-33 (References to Abraham in Genesis 18 & Lot in Genesis 19); Matthew 25:31-46; 1 Peter 4:7-9; Romans 12:13; 1 Kings 17:8-24; Acts 6:1 & 7; Matthew 7:12; Deuteronomy 10:14-22; Revelation 3:7-13.
