“because of the truth that remains in us and will be with us forever.” 2 John 2 HCSB
John states that he and other believers love one another because the truth, God’s truth, abides in them forever. The believers have placed their faith and trust in the simple truth that Jesus is the Christ, the Lord God, the Savior of their souls. Jesus, the Son of God, came into this world, was crucified, buried, and rose again. His death paid the penalty for sin and His resurrection brings new life to all who believe this truth. This truth gives birth to a relationship with God that will last forever. The believer has eternal security because of the truth of gospel of Jesus Christ. This truth causes love, God’s love, to be expressed in their lives.
Lord Jesus, I believe You are my Savior and Lord, and I marvel in the eternal relationship this truth provides. Help me today to exhibit Your love in my relationship with others.
