How important for us is to use our homes and special celebrations for the spiritual work we are called to do

My Dear Friend,I am very glad to welcome you to our column Daily Word for Spiritual Strengths.Today I would like to share with you how important for us is to use our homes and special celebrations for the spiritual work we are called to do. Jesus very often used the home for evangelism. I would like you to read about a situation in Jesus life from Matthew 9:10-13
“While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and “sinners”? On hearing this Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: “I desire mercy, not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners”.
In the verses above we can see how Matthew, who had recently given his life to Jesus, had invited Him to his house.When people give their lives to Jesus, they still have loads of friends and relatives who do not know Jesus as their saviour.As Matthew also had unsaved friends, relatives and work colleagues, every time he invited Jesus to his house, he invited them too.Matthew did this purposely, so that those people could meet up with Jesus, ask Him questions and receive answers. It worked.My dear friend, I would like you to think how you could use your times of special celebration, parties and other opportunities for bringing the gospel to your unsaved relatives, friends and acquaintances.In 1 Corinthians 10:31 the bible reminds us that whatever we do, we must do it for the glory of the Lord:
“So whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”
Inviting people to our homes and celebrations, we have a great opportunity to bring the Good News to them and fulfil this verse in our lives.May God bless you and may His peace rest on you!
