The Elder, To the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth. (3John 1:1)
The whole letter of 3 John revolves around “Truth”. That is because the whole “Bible” revolves around “Truth”! Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6) John begins his letter by reminding “Gaius” that everything about their relationship has been built on “Truth” and their relationship would continue in it, “Whom I love in truth”. We need to know all relationships must be centered on “Truth” if they are going to be “God Fearing Meaningful Relationships”, so John reminds Gaius of the beauty of their relationship! I think it is important to remind you that (1 John) is written to the whole church; (2 John) is written to a family in the church, and (3 John) is written to an individual in the church. The reason that is so important is because “God” wants us as a church, us as families in the church, and us as individuals to know His love for us. Let us walk in “Truth” as we walk in His “Love”!
