3 JOHN: Truthful and Tender

3JohnIn this third short letter by John, he again talks about the value of truth and love.  One without the other is incomplete.  If we internalize this standard of holding onto what is absolute and gospel truth, while maintaining God’s love for all, we’ll be all we were created to be, and our influence on the world will be powerful.  We will be truthful and tender.

    you truly did paint me a beautiful picture of how beautiful it is when I really do live my life truly for the sake of Christ. As a woman this is what I strive to be so I can make a beautiful difference in my community and family. I want to show Jesus to everyone I meet.

    You truly did paint a very beautiful picture of how beautiful it is when we really do live our lives truly for the sake of Christ. I would have said the same thing, trying hard to please those that are important in my life. But these last few years I have had to live those words out in real live action. I have to live it out even when the one I loved the most and was and still is the most important person to me here on earth, is no longer with me. That privilege of wanting to please him is gone for now. While it is with great pain, I do try and live my life with knowing that Jesus is very proud of me and what I can do with His help. Sometimes it is so hard to know how to go about to do things and want to please those whom I am no longer important to them. I feel selfish when I don’t do things for others and want to please them.
