God’s Truth for Trying Times - 9/28/21


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: 1 John 2:18-19 

Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. [1 John 2:18-19 ESV]


CONSIDER: We are living in the last days, and are anticipating the promised return of Christ. There are many who follow what is false and it becomes evident that they truly do not know Jesus Christ. Anyone who truly knows Jesus will continue on in him and if they stray they will repent and return.


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?
