by Rev Joel Yong
3 John 3-4
I was very happy when some believers came and told us that you are living according to the truth. Nothing makes me happier than to hear that my children are living according to the truth.
What would you wish for your children?
Lots of money?
Big house and big car?
Well the above items are great. But they do not guarantee happiness. Neither do they deliver on eternal life.
Living life God’s way.
That provides joy, peace, security …
And yes, eternal life.
No wonder the writer says he rejoices in knowing that the church is walking in God’s ways.
That it has not caved in to worldly pressure and forsaken the truth. In so doing, it would have won some riches or some earthly benefit but lost out on its eternal destiny.
Live for what lasts.
