Hospitality, Friendship, and Laughter

Three unexpected guests show up at Abraham's door. It turns out that one of them is the Lord, God of the Universe. Abraham and Sarah show Gospel hospitality, receive friendship and news that they will have a child within the year, and Sarah responds with cynical laughter. Sarah was faithless in this part of the story, not accepting the word and will of God. Jesus was always faithful, always accepting the will of the Father, even in his own humiliation, suffering, and death. He did this to save us and make us friends of God.
