03 Sep Faith and Wellness During the Pandemic
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 1:2
John begins his epistle with a very personal introduction by praying for the health and wellness of Gaius, the recipient of the letter. Perhaps John took note of walking with Jesus and paying attention to how Jesus often addressed the spiritual and physical needs of the people He encountered. Now, John the elder, appears to be adding that personal touch of wellness to his ministry.
To begin with, what is faith and how do we define wellness?
Well faith is exactly what Hebrews 11:1 says it is: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. Net Bible. Faith is the track that we run on although we cannot see the end of the track. Faith is our confidence.
