3 John, Day 1 Readings

Welcoming Christian Teachers    

Today's reading is the entirety of the short third letter of John.  It provides thanks to a congregation that has lived out its faith by welcoming some itinerant Christian teachers.  Other congregations have not done so; instead, they have been critical of these people -- including one led by Diotrephes.  Christians must welcome those who come in the name of truth.

Read 3 John 1:1-15  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
