2 John 1:4-6

King James Version (KJV)


 
4 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
 
5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
 
6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.


2 John 1:4-6

Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)


 
4 I have rejoiced greatly, for I have found of thy sons that they walk in the truth, as we have received the commandment from the Father.
 
5 ? And now I beseech thee, lady, (not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning) that we love one another.
 
6 And this is charity, that we walk after his commandment. And this is the commandment, That ye walk in him, as ye have heard from the beginning.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

4 We as believers should serve the Lord and follow the truth of the word. The truth is given from the Father and we serve Him as His children who come thru our faith. We should encourage new believers to serve the Lord because they are children in faith. At this time as there is today there were false conversions, they followed the truth when it was easy to do so but when times got hard they left the church.

5 The scriptures contain many commandments but also have scripture that gives promises given with following those commands. Love is something Christ showed us by His death. Love is something we receive by coming to Him in faith. Love is something we show because we have Him building us up for the work of the Lord.

6 It is by love that we serve the Lord and follow His commands. If we show love to others we will not break laws against them and if we show love to the Lord we will avoid breaking His will for us. Now we may have but this does not make us perfect but gives us the desire to please the Lord and to show love to others. His love will show in our life if we have His love in our life.


One day I will be home
