The Olympic Spirit of Hospitality - John Van Sloten
February 14, 2010
|What might God be saying to us through the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics? In particular, what does our hosting of the games teach us about who we are and who God is?
“I was a stranger and you invited me in.”
Jesus in Matthew 25:35, NIV
“So reach out and welcome one another to God's glory.
Jesus did it; now you do it!”
The Apostle Paul in Romans 15:7
"Don't take advantage of a stranger. You know what it's like to be a stranger; you were strangers…”
“Stay on good terms with each other, held together by love. Be ready with a meal or a bed when it's needed. Why, some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it!”
Hebrews 13:1-2, MSG
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Jesus in Luke 6:31
“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”
1 Peter 4:9, NIV
Romans 12:13, NIV
