Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional October 13th – Keep Being Hospitable

(Your Kindness Will Endorse a Divine Visitation)

TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 13:1-2 MSG
“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!”

LET’S TALK
Several times in Scripture, angels appeared as human beings, dressed in regular clothes, just like everyday people.

On a certain occasion, three men came by Abraham’s tent (Genesis 18:2), and the Bible lets us know one of them was the Lord Himself, while the other two were angels.

When the two angels went into Sodom and Gomorrah, the men of those cities saw them as ordinary men, because they looked just like anybody else.

This is because angels have the authority to appear in a glorified form or a concealed manner.

No wonder God’s Word instructs us to be kind and helpful to strangers. Some folks don’t treat strangers well; if they don’t know you, they don’t care about you and wouldn’t help you.

But Hebrews 13:2 says, “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.”

When the Lord and His two angels appeared outside Abraham’s tent, He was actually there to visit Abraham, but He needed his invitation into his home. Thank God Abraham was wise to invite them, or he and Sarah would have missed their miracle (Genesis 18:2-14).

Don’t miss the time of your visitation by being negligent of or unwelcoming to strangers. The Lord may just have come to you through them, bearing that answer you’ve been waiting to receive from Him.

Pray:
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your kindness and for the Word you’ve brought into my heart today. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to live within me. Your wisdom is at work in me now and forever. I’m inspired to bless my generation, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
