I can’t even begin to count how many close friends I have made over a simple meal or a cup of tea (or coffee, if you must!). There is something about stealing away from the “busy” of life and sipping something wonderful, smooth, and warm while sitting in an environment and connecting with friends, new or old.
Over the years, I have learned the gift of teatime discipleship—speaking about eternal truths and life-changing messages of God’s love and design, shaping the foundations of thought, and sharing in friendship over hot beverages and delightful treats. By simply opening my door to seeming strangers and establishing an environment of welcome, I saw firsthand how women need women, friends with whom to share life, companions through all seasons, and spiritual mentors to keep their faith alive.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling,” (1 Peter 4:8-9).
Notice the phrase “above all.” Peter knows that our vibrancy in Christ is flavored primarily by the love we give to and receive from one another.
Serve One Another
Peter continues his encouragement in 4:10-11: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.”
God Provides What We Need To Do His Work
I desire for US to feel seen and to help you understand that God is present. He cares about the burdens that you carry and desires to help you find freedom and wholeness in community with other women.
1 Peter 4:6-19
Be blessed friends .
