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