I was very glad to find some of your children walking in truth, just as we have received commandment to do from the Father. Now I ask you, lady, not as though I were writing to you a new commandment, but the one which we have had from the beginning, that we love one another.
And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it. 2 John 1:4-6
John writes to the church as emphasizes the relationship between truth, love, and obedience. To walk in the truth is to be Spirit controlled as we express love to one another, guided by a Biblical worldview, and obedient to the commands of God. This is the best way to live… as God desires and designed.
How am I walking in the truth, giving and receiving love, and keeping His commands?
God, You really have given me everything I need to live this life in a godly and pleasing way. Empower me today to reach out and love others in Your name. Please amplify my efforts and help me build the part of Your kingdom in my circle of influence. Thank you for my family. Bless my kids.
