3 John 1:8 (New King James Version)

8] We therefore ought to receive such, that we may become fellow workers for the truth.

Passing On The Help

It was the practice of the early pioneers to receive a weary traveler in their home, feed them, lodge them, and if necessary give them something to help them as they continued on their journey. Many times the company was a traveling preacher. The same was true in the New Testament. We have the same opportunity to help the spread of the Gospel by refreshing God's servants. Though the Gospel is perfect, it's messengers are not. We can get overwhelmed in life. Simply by encouraging, meeting a physical need, or specifically praying for them, you help spur on God's Word as the messenger regains new strength for the road ahead. This is what John was speaking of to help pass on the Truth by helping its messengers-making a difference that will last in eternity, not just for the recipient, but for those who will have heard because you were willing to help.

FOR TODAY: Ask God to help you find someone to bless this week with His love.
