The Big Read – Daily Read
v21-22: To pray better for one another, it is a great help to know the condition of those we are praying for. It is good for the church to know how their pastor is doing and for the pastor to know the state of the members in the church.
v23-24: God’s blessing is with those who love the Lord Jesus Christ, and “who continue to be faithful in their love for him so as not to be corrupted from it by any attractions or deceptions, and whose love for him is uncorrupted by any opposing sinful desires, or the love of anything displeasing to him.” We should pray for one another that their love for Christ may be so.
