2 John - Key


For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.

This whole chapter seems to be focused on this idea of the truth. We know that Jesus is the truth, and having Him means having the truth.

As a contrast to the truth, this chapter warns about deceivers. They don't have God, because they don't teach the truth about who Jesus is; and so, they end up doing evil things (v11).

If we're truly in God, instead of having evil deeds, we will keep God's commandment of love. We won't receive antichrists (v10), but we'll have the joy of fellowship with each other (v12).


Having many things to write unto you, I would not [write] with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

Being a very technology-oriented person, I prefer to communicate with people electronically. This verse reminds me that sometimes it can be a much better idea to talk to people in person. I'll make the practical application of look for opportunities to meet with my college instructors in person.
