7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.

PRAY WATCHFULLY

1 Peter 4:8 NIV
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

LOVE DEEPLY

Colossians 3:13-15 NIV

13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

1 Peter 3:9 NIV

9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

PRACTICE HOSPITALITY

Hospitality is not about inviting people into your perfect home, it’s about inviting them into your imperfect heart.

1 Peter 4:10-11 NIV

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

SERVE ONE ANOTHER

Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
