3 John 1:1-5

The elder,

To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the truth.

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers and sisters,[a] even though they are strangers to you.

One response to “3 John 1:1-5

  1. Sounds like a letter to a church, that John had planted, and installed a pastor from the outside, unknown locally. Even though he was a stranger, he loved his flock, and spoke truth to them. This prompted a letter of encouragement and exhortation from the author.

    We should uplift each other, speak blessing before God to each other, and hold each other accountable to walk in truth.
