Peace to you. The friends send you their greetings. Greet the friends there, each by name. (3 John 1.14
A young preacher right out of seminary was called to pastor a small mountain church. Very excited about his calling and winning everyone on the mountain to God, he went door to door evangelizing. He stopped at one farm house and the farmer greeted him. The young preacher asked, "Are you a Christian?" The farmer replied, "No, I believe they live a couple miles down the road." "No! No!" exclaimed the young pastor. "What I want to know is are you lost?" The farmer's reply was quick, "Why, no, I've lived here for some 40 years." In desperation the young preacher finally lowered both barrels. "What I want to know is," said the young preacher in desperation, "are you ready for the Judgment Day!" "When is it?" asked the farmer. "I don't know," said the young preacher. "It could be today or tomorrow!" "Well," replied the farmer, "come back when you find out. My wife will probably want to go both days."
"Greet those who love us in the faith."
Dear God, remind me to warmly greet others with your ever giving love. In Jesus' name, Amen.
