Romans 12:13, “Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.”
How well do you know your church family? Do you keep up with their prayer needs? How about the physical needs of the members of your church? Paul encourages us to know and be known in our church body so we can be the first resource for meeting each other’s needs as they come up. This requires a level of intentionality. It doesn’t just happen through attending a worship service once a week and making a quick exit.
In order to fulfill our God-given role as church members, we have to choose to spend time getting to know others in the church body. This happens in Sunday School classes, activities, and Bible Study events, but it also happens over a cup of coffee or a shared meal. When was the last time you extended an invitation to someone outside your normal circle of friends to spend a bit of time getting to know them within the church? Be intentional in getting to know those around you in your church.
