God’s Truth for Trying Times - 11/6/21


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 1:10-11

“Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward. Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.”
‭‭2 John‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭ESV


CONSIDER: Whoever does not abide or remain fixed on the teaching of Christ does not have God. That means they are not regenerate, they are not born again, they are not a believer. It is crucial that believers remain and continue to obey the word of God.


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.
