Making Guests Feel Like Family

Guests never do any work or preparation; family members always pitch in. We try and impress guests with our hospitality; family members expect to be “part of the flow” and help themselves to whatever they need. Are you treating people like guests or like family?

In this episode of the Everyday Disciple Podcast, we ask the question: do the people coming to your church service each week, and the folks coming into your home, feel more like guests or like part of the family? Caesar is joined by his wife, Tina, to share how and why you can help everyone feel like true brothers and sisters.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why treating everyone like family is a picture of the Gospel.
  • What people really need… and it’s NOT your perfectly clean house.
  • How our Sunday services can help people feel like family rather than visitors or guests.
  • How our language reveals our true heart and intentions in all of this.

A young family is greeted at the door with a warm embrace.

From this episode:

“Helping others feel like part of a family, rather than guests to a program, is the key to really experiencing the gospel in action. Whether at home or at a church service, it is important to remember: these people are your brothers and sisters. Do they feel like they are at home and are needed?”
