Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)


Jesus gave His life to deliver us from this present evil world [simple_tooltip content=’who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,’](Gal. 1:4)[/simple_tooltip] and to give us an abundant life [simple_tooltip content=’The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.’](John 10:10)[/simple_tooltip]. Having walked closely with Jesus and being inspired by the Holy Spirit, John wrote that more than anything he wanted all believers to be healthy and productive. That’s what Jesus died for. He said this would happen as our souls prospered, ,and our souls prosper as we live in His truth.

Jesus said that if we saw Him, we saw the Father. He and the Father were in agreement about everything and were One. Therefore, it stands to reason that anyone who loved us enough to sacrifice His Son to purchase our freedom would do anything for our welfare [simple_tooltip content=’He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?’](Rom. 8:32)[/simple_tooltip]. Yet today many people think God either delights in or is apathetic toward our poverty and sickness.

The Word of God makes it clear that your soul and the rest of your life will prosper as you open your heart to the love and provision of the Lord in every area of your life—spiritual, emotional, mental, social, and physical. Not believing this truth has caused many others to see God as only relevant to their eternal needs. However, the Word plainly teaches that your great salvation includes so much more!

As you believe, experience, and preach a full Gospel, you will see God’s reality and power manifest in the here and now. You shouldn’t reject what Jesus died to give you for any reason. He is glorified when you let Him prosper you. [simple_tooltip content=’Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”’](Ps. 35:27)[/simple_tooltip]

Today give Jesus pleasure by walking in a whole new level of prosperity.
