I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4
Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God. 3 John 1:11
There is a great satisfaction that an evangelist receives when he sees those he led to a faith in Jesus Christ, continue and grow in grace and truth. Paul said he has no greater joy. Sometimes, other people (like Diotrephes) mess things up and a confrontation and correction is necessary. Many grand parents and aunts and uncles have had the privilege of leading their relatives to faith.
Who are the ‘children’ I have who are walking in the truth?
God, what a privilege to have served for so long in youth ministry and to have influenced for Your sake, so many young people. I am grateful for the ministry I am involved in now as well. May many children come to know You in a personal way because of Crossroads Schools. Please give me favor and opportunities to share the amazing story of Jesus and His teachings with those in my family.
