Hospitality is another aspect of living out John 17. In verse 24, Jesus prays to the Father about us: “Father, I desire that those also whom you have given me be with me where I am …” This is of course an echo of John 14:2-3, “My Father’s house has many rooms ... And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” Have you ever felt a cold welcome from someone, who is tolerating your presence but doesn’t really want you there? Jesus is not like that! Not only does he prepare a room for us, he actually desires us to be with him! That is the kind of hospitality we want to offer.
