Partner or Pass

When we have the opportunity to collaborate with churches, missionaries, or other professed Christians, how do we know when to partner or when to pass? Well, it depends. The NT letters of 2 and 3 John provide a framework by which we can answer this question. The primary litmus test for our partnerships is Jesus. Everything else is secondary. One of these letters displays most clearly when to pass, and the other points toward partnership. And when it’s time to partner, John describes a partnership defined by beautiful generosity. Partner or pass? It depends.
