VIDEO SERMON — Walk in the Truth (Part 2 of 2) A Study in the Books of 2 and 3 John
Speaker, Alistair Begg
Sermon given July 20, 2008
The Apostle John acknowledged the spirit of generosity in his dear friend Gaius as a love that had become visible to others. As Alistair Begg explores the book of 3 John, he suggests four key ideas that are illustrated in the first half of the letter: prosperity, testimony, generosity, and synergy. The Gospel calls us to work together for the sake of God’s name, walking daily in the advancement of truth.

1The elder to the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth.
2Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers1 came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. 4I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
Support and Opposition
5Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, 6who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. 7For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
