Forgotten Books of The Bible: 2 John - What is Love?
He had so much to write to them and some of what was in his heart would have to wait until he was face to face with them, but one very important message couldn’t wait. One message needs to be addressed immediately and so John picks up pen and paper and writes to the church (the chosen lady) to LOVE one another. John, much older, understands the importance of loving one another and what it means to truly love. For John love was more than an emotion or feeling it was walking in obedience to God’s commands and if the church (the chosen lady) could do that then loving each other would not be a problem. He wants the church to know that if you say you love God, you will obey God and if you obey God, you will love others.
