From Pastor Perry

10/17/2018 3 John 1:1-4

3 John 1–4 (ESV)

Greeting

The elder to the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth.

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

 

Walking in the truth is not a Christian option.  In fact, we are commanded to live our faith.  This is not Gospel, but Law.  Whether you are looking at Ephesians 2:8-10, or yesterday’s 2 John reading, we are to live our faith.  Our life is to be a living sacrifice.  We don’t want to hear this, but it is all over the New Testament.  We are to be walking in the truth.  I just got back from a circuit conference which was led by Dr. Joel Biermann from Concordia Theological Seminary, St. Louis. This was part of his topic.  The timing of 2 John and 3 John fit into our conference.  Wow.

 

I pray: O heavenly Father, help us to walk in the truth, not just verbal, but in action too.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
