This week we continue our series looking at some of the lesser known letters in the Bible. John's second letter, 3 John. This letter is written to a man called Gaius, and is written to encourage him in his walk with Jesus. He commends his for his generosity, warns him of an unhelpful and dangerous person in the church, then seeks to encourage Gaius to imitate Jesus. Some key verses:
Verse 4 - I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are living by the truth.
Verse 11 - Dear friend, don’t be like those who do evil. Be like those who do good. Anyone who does what is good belongs to God. Anyone who does what is evil hasn’t really seen or known God.
We do good as a response of knowing God, and is wonderful grace to us!
