Do You Need A Doctor?
by Steve Higginbotham
December 18, 2006
The book of 3 John begins with Paul praying for the well-being of Gaius.  But take a moment and let the words of his prayer sink in. 
 
John said, "I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers."
 
Did you see that?  He prayed that his physical well-being prospered as his soul prospered.  I wonder what would happen if that prayer was answered just as it was prayed.  Would you be full of new found energy, and feel better than you have in years?  Or would you need someone to call a doctor or maybe even the coroner?
 
In a day and age when so much stock is place on our physical condition, it is refreshing to have our attention refocused upon what is really important...the prosperity and well-being of our soul!
