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.
