Good Health

  John wished good health and prosperity for Gaius. When does the soul prosper? It presupposes regeneration and forgiveness by obedience to the gospel. It means a saved relationship with Christ and a constant growth in spiritual qualities. It means growing in grace and knowledge and magnifying the name of Christ by living a godly life. It means treating others justly and living so others can see Christ in us. It means to walk in truth, that is, according to the teaching of the Bible. Do you prosper in good health?

  Third John is a very unique short epistle that emphasizes relationship with Christ and brethren. Gaius was a living demonstration of the "new commandment" to love one another. We can be the same if we will try.
