Encouragement for Gaius

3 I was overjoyed when the brothers and sisters arrived and spoke highly of your faithfulness to the truth, shown by how you live according to the truth.

References for 3 John 1:3

      4 I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are living according to the truth.
      5 Dear friend, you act faithfully in whatever you do for our brothers and sisters, even though they are strangers.
      6 They spoke highly of your love in front of the church. You all would do well to provide for their journey in a way that honors God,
      7 because they left on their journey for the sake of Jesus Christ without accepting any support from the Gentiles.
      8 Therefore, we ought to help people like this so that we can be coworkers with the truth.
