Hospitality. Love. (the missing link)

We sang this hymn in church on Sunday and the words just resonated in me ...

I was thinking back to my posts on hospitality and the thought crossed my mind:  If we can't show hospitality and love in our own houses of worship ... then how can we even attempt to solve some of the bigger problems of the world?

Why do we fight over doctrine, worship practices, financial giving and and church politics?  We are Christians.  Love can and should be our first line of defense.  But it's not as simple as that.

What would the world look like if people truly did know we were Christians by our love?  If they could see it in the way we reached out to each other despite our differences and in the way we came together to reach out to those who cry out in need.

We are one in the spirit, we are one in the Lord
We are one in the spirit, we are one in the Lord
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored
And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
They will know we are Christians by our love
