And now I plead with you, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment to you, but that which we have had from the beginning: that we love one another.
– 2 John 1:5
Just as with our text yesterday in 1 John 5, we have a tendency of adding layers to the simplicity we find in Christ. Once again we are reminded here of the simple importance of the commandment we’ve had from the beginning: “that we love one another.” It really is that simple.
That it is simple, doesn’t mean that it is easy. “God give us the ability and the grace to love one another as you have loved us!”
