Good Morning Y’all. Today we are reading 2 John. Has only one chapter and stresses the need to love one another as God commanded.
Holy Spirit we ask you open our eyes to see, our ears to hear and our hearts to percieve the truth in the word today. Without you we can’t understand what we are reading so we ask for your help. In Jesus Name. Amen.
Be blessed 🙂
S – Scriptures that stood out for me
2 John 1:2 AMP: Because of the Truth which lives and stays on in our hearts and will be with us forever:
2 John 1:6 AMP: And what this love consists in is this: that we live and walk in accordance with and guided by His commandments (His orders, ordinances, precepts, teaching). This is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you continue to walk in love [guided by it and following it].
O – Observations
O1 – Gods truth lives in our hearts and will be forever. God has permanent residence in us 🙂
O2 – Again I noticed the command to love one another. This seems to be a common theme running through the book of 1 John and now 2 John. Love seems to be at the forefront of Gods mind. He definitely wants us to walk and live in love. V6 in the Amplified version says “And what this love consists in is this: that we live and walk in accordance with and guided by His commandments (His orders, ordinances, precepts, teaching). This is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you continue to walk in love [guided by it and following it].”
O3 – Watch out that we do not stray away from Gods commands and loose our reward. Rather lets be diligent in our pursuit of God and we will receive our full reward in due time.
Let love be the motive for our actions, let it guide or thoughts, words and actions
P – Prayer
Dear Lord we thank you for today and the grace to learn at your feet. We thank you for your son and the price he paid so we can be in right standing with you. Today we pray that you be kind and merciful to us, that you give us your peace, truth and love. We pray for the grace to live and walk in love, that your love will be the basis for everything that we do. Help us be obedient children. Thank you Lord for we believe you have heard us. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
Thanks for joining us today. Feel free to share your thoughts on the chapter
Tomorrow we will be reading the book of 3 John.
Have a blessed and wonderful day walking in love 🙂 . Remember, God himself is LOVE and our obedience is a true measure of our love for Him
