2&3 John and Jude
2John :9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
If we don't do as God says, then we God is not with us. If we do as He commands, then He will be with us.
3John :4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
I think this is something we'd all love to be able to say, but we have to train them in that way to start with.
Jude :22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
We need to remember , when we are trying to help those who are lost, that some you have to be gentle with, and some you have to get very tough. Our job is to recognize who is in which catagory.
Tomorrow's chapters will be Ezekial 13-18.
