Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit. 3 Some of the traveling teachers[b] recently returned and made me very happy by telling me about your faithfulness and that you are living according to the truth. 4 I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children are following the truth. ~ 3John 1:2-4
This is my prayer for the people in my life…. that you are healthy in body and strong in spirit. I get great JOY in this. But the more important message in this little one chapter book is to take care of those who bring the Gospel Message to others.
He goes on in this chapter talking about workers not taking a penny from unbelievers. I really never caught that before but what an IMPORTANT statement and important way to do ministry. Being an evangelist is not about MONEY… or even being supported. This is where many have gone wrong in ministry. IF the body of Christ was obedient to the teachings we have and took care of those traveling, those preaching and teaching the Word of God and those traveling and teaching was obedient to the teaching ministry would be much different and the world would NOT look at us as always trying to get their money!!!
Such a GREAT word that has impacted my life today.
Now go out and have an EPIC day today!!
