Summary: How do we walk in truth?
2 John 1.6 – Walking in Truth
V1 – We find John’s letter is written unto the church
• “elect lady”
o God has chosen us for His own.(purpose, possession, propitiation of Love[for later not now])
o We can try to run or run or fight, but in the end those that are His are those that have became the elect: through Him (cross) and by Him (empty tomb)
• “and her children”
o What does it mean to be a child of God?
We think it sometimes a burden, or a chore that must be done. BUT
o As his child we are:
Protected by God
Cared for by God
Loved by God
o Because we are His children and He is our Father-Daddy
• “whom I love in truth”
o Jesus said that He is the Truth and that he would send the spirit of Truth when he left.
o The love therefore is not a superficial love, but a love built in Christ that is more powerful than the common love of man.
o Our love of God and the Elect is a deeper love than that can be explained it can only be experienced first had through Him (the cross) and in Him (indwelling)
• “and not I only”
o Sometimes we feel all alone, no body understand, no one gets just how I feel… HE DOES, and you are not alone Christ is always with His children.
o We the Elect of Christ are here for each other, in a spiritual bond that is not nor cannot ever be broken, because it is in Christ alone.
• “also all they that have known the truth”
o It is a spiritual knowledge that bonds us together.
Knowledge of Truths sake (v2a)
• The Cross
Knowledge of the indwelling Truth (v2b)
Knowledge of the relationship of Truth (v2c)
