  Image: St. John, Frans Hals, 1625, Getty Museum, Los Angeles Note: Devotion taken from last Sunday's sermon on 3 John 1-8: We therefore ought to receive such, that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth (3 John 8). In his third epistle, the apostle John addresses Gaius (v. 1), likely a faithful minister in the church, commending and exhorting him to continue to receive and help orthodox teachers who sought his hospitality and support. In so doing, John says, “we might be fellowhelpers in the truth.” Behind the compound noun “fellowhelpers” is the Greek plural noun synergoi. We might s ..read more

  Image: Saint John of Patmos, South German, c. 1460-70, The National Gallery, London. Note: Devotion based on last Sunday's sermon on 2 John 7-13. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward (2 John 8). In the closing verses of John’s brief second epistle to a church and her members (“the elect lady and her children” v. 1), the apostle offers three specific admonitions under the general call, “Look to yourselves”: First, he warns against false teachers and false teachings (2 John 7-9). He calls them “deceivers” and “an ant ..read more

The Vision (7.5.24): Walking in Truth and Love

  Note: Devotion taken from last Sunday's sermon on 2 John 1-6: “in truth and love” (2 John 3). Whereas John’s first General Epistle (1 John) has been described as being more like a sermon or doctrinal treatise, his second epistle is clearly a letter. It begins, “The elder to the elect lady and her children…” (v. 1).  John the apostle, calls himself an elder. Peter the apostle did the same (cf. 1 Peter 5:1). His recipient, “the elect lady and her children” is likely a reference to a sister church and her members (cf. 2 John 13, “The children of thy elect sister greet thee”). The ap ..read more

The Vision: What is "a sin unto death"? (1 John 5:16-17)

  Image: Round bales, North Virginia, June 2024 Note: Devotion article taken from last Sunday's sermon on 1 John 5:16-18. There is a sin unto death: I do not say he shall pray for it… and there is a sin not unto death (1 John 5:16b, 17b). In 1 John 5:16-17, the apostle John encourages intercessory prayer for a brother who has fallen into sin. He also makes a distinction, however, affirming prayer for those who have sinned “a sin not unto death,” but suggesting no prayer be made for those who have sinned “a sin unto death.” What are these two categories? Various answers have been ..read more
