Supporting the Truth (3rd John #4)

Generosity toward the truth (vss 5-6)

  • Charity is what it’s called.
  • You may not be the preacher or the missionary, but you can have a real participation in God’s work through giving.

Mobility of the truth (vs 7)

  • Acts 15:1-4
  • Romans 15:20-29

Responsibility for the truth (vs 8)

  • Saints are responsible for supporting the truth, not the world.
  • In verse 7 the church has clearly moved outside of Israel and it’s work during this time John writes is among all other nations outside Israel – a.k.a Gentiles.
  • 1 Corinthians 9:1-12
