in 2 John

2 John - September 15th 2017

Be careful to walk in truth and love.


Read 2 John v. 1-6

  1. Who is the author writing to and how does he feel about them? (Hint: Who or what is the elect lady?)
  2. Why does he feel that way about them? Who else feels this way about them?
  3. What is the author's main request and what does that look like? (What is the connection between truth and love?)


  1. What does walking in God’s commands look like practically? (Discuss this for sometime, then, read the Church Covenant which summarizes a lot of God’s commands for how we are to love one another)
  2. How could you grow in loving the members of Covenant Hope Church.


Read 2 John v. 7-13

  1. Why does John feel the need to ask them to walk in God’s commands?
  2. How should they treat those who don’t abide in the teaching of Christ? Why? What will their outcome be?
  3. Since this is addressed to a group (elect lady and her children) what does this imply that all members of the group should know?


  1. In what ways do we either support or not support teachers as a church? As individuals?
