3 John 11-8 Those who are beloved of Christ, will love the brethren forhis sake. Soul prosperity is the greatest blessing on this sideheaven. Grace and health are rich companions. Grace will employhealth. A rich soul may be lodged in a weak body; and grace mustthen be exercised in submitting to such a dispensation. But wemay wish and pray that those who have prosperous souls, may havehealthful bodies; that their grace may shine where there isstill more room for activity. How many professors there are,about whom the apostle's words must be reversed, and we mustearnestly wish and pray that their souls might prosper, as theirhealth and circumstances do! True faith will work by love. Agood report is due from those who receive good; they could notbut testify to the church, what they found and felt. Good menwill rejoice in the soul prosperity of others; and they are gladto hear of the grace and goodness of others. And as it is a joyto good parents, it will be a joy to good ministers, to seetheir people adorn their profession. Gaius overlooked pettydifferences among serious Christians, and freely helped all whobore the image, and did the work of Christ. He was upright inwhat he did, as a faithful servant. Faithful souls can heartheir own praises without being puffed up; the commendation ofwhat is good in them, lays them at the foot of the cross ofChrist. Christians should consider not only what they must do,but what they may do; and should do even the common actions oflife, and of good-will, after a godly sort, serving God therein,and designing his glory. Those who freely make known Christ'sgospel, should be helped by others to whom God gives the means.Those who cannot themselves proclaim it, may yet receive, help,and countenance those who do so.
