I Hope All is Well With You

Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.

3 John 1:2 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/3jn.1.2.NLT

I hope all is well with you. I wish you health in your body and strength in your spirit. May God be near you with blessing, encouragement, and abundance.

The apostle John is writing this letter to a friend, thanking him for the hospitality given to people who travel, and teach others about following Jesus. Here are some of my thoughts about John’s letter for us today.

May we always show hospitality and kindness to people who are teaching and showing us how to follow Jesus in this world today.  Leaders and teachers appreciate genuine relationships when on the road.

Look for ways to be an encouragement to others with your relationship, time, and resources.  Meet for coffee (one of my favorites), give a gift, share a meal, provide transportation from one place to another, give money where needed, and make connections with others on someone else’s behalf.

Encouragement is really quite easy.  It does take time and doesn’t do well in a rush.  Giving encouragement is often fun.  One of the real blessings in encouraging people leading and teaching us in the ways of Jesus is we learn and grow through sharing hospitality.

Encouragement:  The apostle John has given us great words to begin giving encouragement:  Dear Friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.  Build from there, with a real focus on providing hospitality to those showing us the ways of Jesus.

Prayer:  Dear Jesus, thank You for reminding us to focus on encouraging and caring for those who are teaching us Your ways.  Thank You for reminding us to simply greet each other with kind and compassionate words. 

In Your name Jesus, we pray, Amen.

Disabilities Program - Serving Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Camp SunSparrow

It is common knowledge that people need interaction with one another. To take that fact a step further, community and belonging are critical to the health and well-being of each and every person on planet Earth.
