Scripture – 

3 John 3-4 – 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.

Observation – 

John is very glad to hear that the Church near Ephesus are believing the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  They are standing firm in the faith and not being led astray by false teachers.  John refers to the believers as my children and it brings him the most Jost to see them following the truth of Jesus Christ.

Application – 

There is importance in recognizing the truth of the gospel of Jesus. I need to remember Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only truth in which I place my faith and trust.  With that, I must follow Jesus unapologetically to live and love like Jesus.  When I am walking in truth, Jesus is with me and I can have joy even in tribulation.

Prayer – 


Thank you for the truth in the living Word of God, Jesus.  Let me realize that and walk in truth to glorify your name.
