I have written something to the church, but Diotrephes, who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge our authority. So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, talking wicked nonsense against us. And not content with that, he refuses to welcome the brothers, and also stops those who want to and puts them out of the church. Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God. Demetrius has received a good testimony from everyone, and from the truth itself. We also add our testimony, and you know that our testimony is true.
I had much to write to you, but I would rather not write with pen and ink. I hope to see you soon, and we will talk face to face. 3 John 9-14 ESV
What kind of testimony do you have at home, at work and in your church?
Are you being tried by the actions of someone who professes to be a Christian?
- The peace of God surpasses all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)
What has God revealed to you?
- A good testimony among those around me
