In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im are joined by Rosaria Butterfield, author of The Gospel Comes With a House Key. During their conversation, they discuss the following questions:
- Overview of The Gospel Comes With a House Key
- How did you experience hospitality that led to your conversion?
- To what extent is it a post-hospitable world?
- Discuss the concept that there isn’t a lot of commonality between gay men and lesbian women.
- How can church leaders who have been hurt begin to open their hearts to being hospitable again?
“The one place you are called to seek out strangers, make by God’s grace those strangers into neighbors, and watch by God’s grace those neighbors become part of the family of God is your home.”
“We are missing the opportunity to put the hand of the stranger into the hand of the Savior. We really do love our neighbors, but we don’t love them enough.”
“If Jesus is the answer, what is the question? Do you care what my questions are?”
“Jesus clearly was who He said He is, and that changed everything.”
“I am not going to love you more if you become a Christian, I am just going to love you longer.”
“Leaders are always responsible not only to see and think about where you are going, but to look behind you and see what is going on back there.”
“We live in a social media infatuated madness world where people have bought the delusion that counterfeit hospitality is the real thing.”
“Hospitality means getting close enough to people to get hurt, but praying that you are close enough to people so that you can put their hand into the hand of Jesus.”
“The early church feared false teaching more than it feared persecution and because of that the early church was willing to do anything to see their neighbors converted.”
“The gospel doesn’t front load with a moral argument, it front loads with what it means to be an image bearer of the Holy God.”
“Your boundaries and my boundaries need to be marked by the blood of Jesus.”
