The Apostle John prays for his church:
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. – 3 John 2
John Trapp, an Anglican Bible commentator and pastor in the 1600s, explains what it means for our souls to prosper.
The soul prospers when it has close communion with God;
enjoys the light of his loving countenance (smiling face);
preferring his favor before the world’s warm sun.”
Don’t let an evening pass without asking the Lord
to kindle a renewed zeal and fervor for Him
in your heart as you contemplate
His infinite mercies and sacrificial love in Jesus for you!
