Session 3

There’s more than one way to spread the good news

Read: 3 John 1:1-14

Do you believe the Gospel can change the world? If your answer is yes, in what ways does your life show others that you believe that?

Perhaps it is an odd question, but the Bible gives us plenty of examples of why “walking the walk” is so much more important than simply “talking the talk.” Believing 100 percent in the power of the Gospel will undoubtedly affect how we handle everything from finances to relationships. Our mission of furthering the Gospel will influence our daily decisions, and our actions will show people that we believe in the power of the Gospel.

We have countless opportunities to express our faith through action. 

3 John highlights a clear example of a Christian who showed his faith in the power of the Gospel through his actions. Not only can others testify to Gaius’ faithfulness and love for the truth (3 John 1:3-4), but he also did his part by opening his home to missionaries he had never met, solely for the purpose of spreading the good news. He may not have been on the front lines traveling to share Jesus’ message, but he took advantage of the opportunities he had to support what he believed in.

Gaius was a Christian who devoted his time and resources to the Gospel, and like him, we have countless opportunities to express our faith through action. Sometimes we get to directly share the Gospel with people while serving them — buying someone a meal, cleaning someone's house while they are sick, serving at church. Other times, we have the chance to help missionaries bring the Gospel to the world by hosting them in our homes or sending supplies and financial support.

We have big and small opportunities to spread the Gospel and show what sets our faith apart. Now, it’s up to us to find those opportunities and act on them.
