“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” (Hebrews 13:2 NIV)
So, what’s all this stuff about angels?
Throughout Biblical times God used an army of celestial beings to make special announcements, and to minister to His people on earth. These supernatural beings frequently visited our mortal world in the guise of strangers traveling along the dusty byways of life.
God’s Heavenly Messengers are universally known today as angels. But in a manner of speaking, we’re all God’s “Heavenly Messengers” here on earth: we all have a story to tell, an experience to relate, a testimony to share; and, like His celestial band of servants, the Creator of the Universe wants each of us to be a Godly emissary of His supernatural love. He wants each of us to follow in the footsteps of His Son Jesus Christ, through a lifestyle of giving, serving, encouraging, and … sharing the Words of Life!
Couple this truth with the knowledge that God created each of us in His own image — thus placing within our hearts a precious spark of the divine — and it’s easy to conclude that … in a manner of speaking … we are all God’s angels in this life!
Tom & Wilma currently have four books in print, The Heart of an Angel: Becoming God’s Messengers of Love and Hospitality to a World in Need, Angel in the Kitchen: Truth & Wisdom Inspired by Food, Cooking, Kitchen Tools and Appliances!, and Diet for Dreamers: Inspiration to Feed Your Dreams, Encouragement to Foster Your Creativity! Their latest book is Spiritual Boot Camp for Creators & Dreamers.
The prestigious Publishers Weekly reviews The Heart of an Angel !!
“The Englishes (Angel in the Kitchen), husband and wife, ask readers to redefine hospitality by considering it from a biblical sense in this impassioned book.” (PW review continued below)
(PW review continued) “In modern parlance, hospitality implies entertaining perfectly and putting on a show, they write. But, for them, this is misguided; they see expressing love in a practical way and developing relationships as the true nature of hospitality. By creating an environment in which God can work and reaching out when others are in need (instead of waiting for the perfect set of circumstances), they believe that one can rediscover the heart of hospitality. There are many stories from the Bible … filled with biblical imperatives (‘Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or place to stay’) and stories of how hospitality helped people find grace (Abraham greeting the three angels at his home is used as an origin tale). Bringing together all the Bible has to say about being hospitable, the Englishes’ forceful book will appeal to Christians interested in deeply scriptural reading.”
