2 John is often a book that does not get much attention in the Bible, but there are beautiful truths within it. To give a little background, John is an older man at this point in his life. That is why he uses phrases like “children”. In the passage, you will notice he is talking to a “lady”. This “lady” is more than likely a church that he is addressing.
Two things to notice: First, John loves this church and wants them to follow God. He shows that he loves them and so do other believers “because of the truth that abides in us” (v. 1-2). Then, he commands them to walk in the commandments that they know (v. 4-6). Secondly, John wants them to be careful of who’s teaching they follow. He does not want them to go astray.
What I love about 2 John is that we can see the heart of a pastor. No matter what church you go to, or where you are living, you need to find a pastor who loves and cares for you and teaches the truth. My prayer is that you have found that at CPC. As one of the staff members, I promise that we pray for you and will be there for you if you need something.
So my question for you is how can we pray for you?
