This is my "Welcome" sign that hangs in my kitchen.

This is my “Welcome” sign that hangs in my kitchen.

“Lessons from My Kitchen:  Part 6”

My home is not pretentious, but comfortable.  I desire for all who come to our home to feel welcomed and at ease.

I am unable to find who the originator of the following quote was, but I like it…“May all who enter as guests leave as friends.”  True!  That’s how I feel about our home.

In Romans 15:7 we are told, “Christ welcomed you, so you should welcome each other. This will bring honor to God.”  I know that I try daily to honor God in all that I say and do.  Do I always succeed?  Most likely not, but I try.  Furthermore, this sentiment of honoring God is confirmed throughout the bible.  Read these two common and powerful verses:

*“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”  1 Corinthians 10:31

*“Everything you say and everything you do should be done for Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.Colossians 3:17

We should welcome others because that honors God.

So welcome to my kitchen, and welcome to my home.

You know that you will have a bowl of M&Ms  waiting for you.  There may be even some banana bread or homemade chocolate chip cookies. I’m sure I can have some sweet tea waiting for you as well.  And we will always have good conversation and laughs intertwined.  If you want to come and just have some prayer… come on!  This kitchen counter has been surrounded in prayer daily. Welcome.  Welcome to my kitchen.

You know who is standing at your door, knocking, waiting for you to “welcome” Him in?  Jesus.  If you haven’t invited Him into your heart/home yet, what are you waiting for?

Remember… Look around your kitchen and ponder on what others may say about you.  Turn it into a God lesson.  I hope you stay tuned for more “Lessons from My Kitchen”.

I pray many blessings and much joy for you! Have a wonderful day. – Stephanie
