Responsive Reading:

Hebrews 1:1–3a

Leader: Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.
ALL: And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son.
Leader: God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.
ALL:  The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command.


Acts 11:25–26 (NIV)
Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.

Practicing the ways of Jesus

God: Teach me how to put Gospel Hospitality into practice by revealing who is already pouring into me, and who I can be pouring into.

Do you have someone who is pouring into you? Are you pouring into anyone?
