Radically Ordinary Hospitality

In Romans 12:13 Paul instructs Christians to “contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” So what does it mean to show hospitality, and why is this particular way of both expressing our faith and interacting with our neighbors so overlooked in our day? On this edition of White Horse Inn we’ll be talking to Rosaria Butterfield about these issues and more as we engage with her about her book, The Gospel Comes With a House Key: Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in a Post-Christian World.

Host: Michael Horton, Rosaria Butterfield, Adriel Sanchez, Steve Parks, & Mike Brown

God’s Hospitality & Grace

The entire Christian message can be understood through the lens of gift-giving. At its heart, the Bible is the story of God’s gracious and sacrificial giving of himself in order to rescue his fallen and rebellious creation. "In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1Jn 4:10). And not only has God rescued us, but he also invites us to be instruments of his own grace and hospitality toward others. On this program, Michael Horton talks with Kelly Kapic, author of God So Loved, He Gave: Entering the Movement of Divine Generosity (originally aired Oct. 5, 2014).

The Ministry of Word & Sacrament

Before he ascended into heaven, Jesus didn’t give his followers any instructions for creating amazing worship experiences. He also didn’t inform them as to how they could go about transforming culture, or the various steps they could take to have their best life or best world now. Rather, Jesus instructed his disciples to go and make disciples of all nations by teaching and baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Mt 28:18-20). On this program, the hosts are beginning a new series on the importance of recovering the Ministry of Word & Sacrament.

The Foolishness of Cross-Centered Preaching

The Apostle Paul wrote that “the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1Cor. 1:18). Today, however, it is not only the content of our gospel that is considered foolish, but also the very method of preaching itself that is often called into question. We need upbeat worship services and dynamic youth programs for the kids, particularly in a day such as ours in which people have shorter attention spans. But the question is whether these new approaches actually help us to proclaim the message of Christ crucified, or whether they simply make us more effective at entertaining the sheep.

What is the Purpose of a Sermon?

Many people today confuse preaching with therapy, seeing Jesus as a kind of life coach who gives us “be happy attitudes” to help us cope with life’s disappointments, along with practical principles for self-transformation. Others view preaching as a kind of political speech, where Jesus becomes the mascot of either Democratic or Republican policy prescriptions. So then what is the purpose of a sermon, and why have Christians over the centuries given so much attention to the proclamation of the Word during the weekly worship service? That’s the focus of this edition of the program as the hosts are continuing their discussion of the Ministry of Word & Sacrament.
