I wanted to change it up a bit this week with giving us an overview of 2 John.

The Big Idea:

  • I can measure my love for God with my trust of God. (2 John 1:6)

How Does 2 John Fit Into My Story:

  • It really does matter what people think of us. How we represent Jesus is on the line. (2 John 1:1)

  • The quickest way to get sidetracked from following Jesus is to stop believing in Jesus. (2 John 1:7-9)

  • Do research on what people believe before you let them influence you. (2 John 1:9)

How Does 2 John Fit Into God’s Story:

  • The Gospel is central to everything we believe. (2 John 1:7)

  • Nothing will stop God from executing His plans and purposes. (2 John 1:7-9)

Timeline:

  • Written along with 3 John from Ephesus from John (the beloved disciple of Jesus) about 60 years after Jesus ascended to heaven

  • A.D. 85-95

Key Verse:

Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning.

1 John 1:6 (NLT)
