This week’s reading is found in III John verse 2. “Beloved I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” Here we find a prayer of threefold value. 1. I pray that you prosper in ALL things. 2. I pray that you are healthy so you can enjoy the prosperity. 3. I pray that you prosper in your health as much as you prosper in your spirit and soul. John desired that the church prospered IN ALL THINGS, just as they prospered mentally and spiritually, he wanted them to prosper materially or physically. Prosper means to flourish, thrive, grow in a vigorous way, to do better, to succeed at reaching something desirable. In John 10:10 Jesus said that He came to give us the life of abundance. He designed a life that overflowed with good and was well supplied and rich. Never forget this, above all things, God desires for His people to prosper; spiritually, mentally, physically and materially. Anyone who tells you otherwise is simply wrong!
