God’s Truth for Trying Times - 11/3/21


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: 2 John 1:4-5

“I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as we were commanded by the Father. And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another.” (2 John‬ ‭1:4-5‬)


CONSIDER: John is very joyful that he found out that some of them were walking in the truth. They were obeying God. And he adds a restatement of a command already given, to love one another. Those walking in the truth, those who believe, must also display their love for God by loving their brothers and sisters in Christ.


THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY:‬‬ Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
