God's Amazing Blessing
Announcement—I'm moving!

here's the link to the first Part: 

Then follow the arrows at the bottom of each post to the next Part.
There are 10 parts in all.

I recommend that you read each part, there are amazing details—
and God took care of each and every one! 


This post is the continuation of my Study of Colossians.
Luke the beloved physician and Demas salute you. Give my greetings to the brethren at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the assembly (the church) which meets in her house. Colossians 4:14, 15 (AMP)
Do you often wonder why certain people are mentioned in the Bible? I do. As I read these two verses, I thought of Nympha. She's only mentioned this one time, but look at what she is known for—the church that meets in her house. 

Think for a moment what that means. Paul was writing this letter from prison. He was in prison for preaching the gospel. And here we have a lady who is wiling to open her home for people to gather to pray and learn God's word. 
Practice hospitality to one another (those of the household of faith). [Be hospitable, be a lover of strangers, with brotherly affection for the unknown guests, the foreigners, the poor, and all others who come your way who are of Christ’s body.] And [in each instance] do it ungrudgingly (cordially and graciously, without complaining but as representing Him). 1 Peter 4:9 (AMP)
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know the that God has just given me a Castle. This is the King of kings' Castle. Therefore, I want it to be used to honor God. And part of that includes hospitality. (To read about the Castle click here.)

It's easy to make excuses for not opening the Castle to guests. But it's the right thing to do. Nympha opened her home to other believers, and I should do the same. 

If my heart is permeated with a deep sense of reverence for God, I'll practice hospitality and open my heart and my home to others.
