Message for August 30, 2015 from Pastor Jerry

3 John 2-4  “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.  For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”



Prosperity is a result.  GOD’S PROSPERITY. It is clear that God wants His children to prosper.  How can anyone deny that?  However, prosperity should not be the end in itself.  It ought to be the result of a quality of life, commitment, dedication, and action that is in line with God’s Word.  In this text the word “prosper” (Greek euodoo) literally means “to help on the road” or “succeed in reaching.”  It clearly implies that divine prosperity is not a momentary, passing phenomenon, but rather it is an ongoing, progressing state of success and well-being.  It is intended for every area of our lives:  the spiritual, the physical and emotional, and the material.  However, God does not want us to unduly emphasize any one area.  We must maintain a balance.
