“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?”
Isaiah 58: 6,7 ESV
Hospitality builds friendship like nothing else. Friendship is the basis from which all Christians can share the gospel. All this is nothing, of course, without God working in people’s lives. Through Christ there is pardon for sinners and freedom from slavery to sin. From our part then, in and before all this must be fervent prayer.
