Lesson 2: Hospitality and Gospel Ministry, Part 1 (3 John 5-8)

Related Media

How should one receive a stranger who comes into town preaching the true gospel message? Gaius made a decision that John commended—he showed them hospitality. It might have felt like risky business at certain points and doubtless took some discernment along the way as people arrived, but through his faithful ministry he provides an example for believers today. Pastor Daniel applies the message of this text by emphasizing, “God calls us to joyfully participate in gospel ministry by providing hospitality to gospel workers.” He maintains, “Biblical hospitality is when I demonstrate my love for others by joyfully using my home and other resources to meet their physical needs.”
