"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth."
-- 3 John 4 (NIV)
St. John the Evangelist wrote 3 John to his dear friend Gaius. Gaius was a faithful Christian who walked in the way of Christ. He showed hospitality to Christian missionaries and was devout in his faith. John was an apostle with the gifts of evangelism and encouragement. Gaius had the gifts of hospitality and faith. Everyone has their gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit. John had his. Gaius had his. And we have ours. However, all of us can use our various gifts for the sake of the Truth. Jesus is the Truth, and it gives me no greater joy than to hear that any of my loved ones are walking in him.
