3 John Chapter 1 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • John’s Third Letter
  • 1 The elder to Gaius the beloved, whom I love in truth.
  • 2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be healthy, even as your soul prospers.
  • 3 For I rejoiced greatly, when brothers came and testified about your truth, even as you walk in truth.
  • 4 I have no greater joy than this, to hear about my children walking in truth.
  • 5 Beloved, you do a faithful work in whatever you accomplish for those who are brothers and strangers.
  • 6 They have testified about your love before the assembly. You will do well to send them forward on their journey in a way worthy of God,
  • 7 because for the sake of the Name they went out, taking nothing from the Gentiles.
  • 8 We therefore ought to receive such, that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
  • 9 I wrote to the assembly, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first among them, doesn't accept what we say.
  • 10 Therefore, if I come, I will call attention to his deeds which he does, unjustly accusing us with wicked words. Not content with this, neither does he himself receive the brothers, and those who would, he forbids and throws out of the assembly.

  • Greetings
  • 1 From the elder to his dear friend Gaius, whom he sincerely loves.
  • 2 Dear friend, I pray that all may be well with you and that you may have good health – I know that all is well with your soul.
  • 3 For it was a great joy to me, when some followers of the Lord came and testified to your fidelity to the truth. I know that your own life is guided by the truth.
  • 4 Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to hear from time to time that the lives of my children are guided by the truth.
  • Gaius
  • 5 Dear friend, you are faithful in all the things you do for other followers – even when they are strangers to you.
  • 6 They themselves have testified before the church to your love. You will do well to help them on their way in a manner worthy of the service of God.
  • 7 For it was on behalf of Christ’s name that they set out, not accepting even one thing from the Gentiles.
  • 8 Therefore, we should support people like them, and so take our share in their work for the truth.
  • Diotrephes and Demetrius
  • 9 I wrote something to the church, but Diotrephes (who loves to be the leader among them) doesn’t welcome us.
  • 10 So if I come, I will bring up his actions in telling wicked nonsense about us. Not content with that, he not only refuses to personally welcome our friends who are followers, but actually stops those who would, and expels them from the church.

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
