Love Wisely

 

                    Text:  2 John  --

 

The Priority of Love in the Christian’s life

          We are commanded to love one another

 

The Providence of Freedom

          Not everyone hears the truth

          Not everyone believes the truth

          Not everyone obeys the truth

         

          It is by God’s grace alone

 

The Poison of Deception

          Deception:

              Seeking to cause someone to accept as true
              that which is false

          Forms of Deception:

              DENYING WHAT IS TRUE  vs. 7

              EXAGGERATING WHAT IS TRUE  vs. 9

 

The Power of Discernment

          Dealing with deceivers:

              Don’t let them in your house

              Don’t greet them

              Don’t listen to them

            Have nothing to do with them

 

The Protection of Friendship

          John desired to see her face to face

                But the matter was of such importance
                he felt compelled to address it immediately

 

Practical Discernment

          Love everyone (but do not be friends with everyone)

          Distance yourself from those who distort the truth

                  “You adulterous people, don’t you know that
              friendship with the world means enmity against God?

              Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the
              world becomes an enemy of God.”    James 4:4
