2 John 1:2 ICB: We love you because of the truth—the truth that lives in us and will be with us forever.
Have you ever been told that Christ is living in you temporarily until you offend Him and He will leave you? Or have you ever been told that you are no longer having God in you again because you have fallen in sin? I have news for you. That is a lie from the pit of Hell. Jesus says during His departure from earth in Matthew 28:20:… and I will be with you always, even until the end of the age. “
John understood this truth very well and that was why he said in today’s text that the truth lives in us and will be with us forever. The truth is Christ who lives in us and will be with us forever. Jesus said, I am The way, The truth and The life. John 14:6.
Notice that the Bible did not say a Truth that lives in us, rather it said, The Truth that lives in us. Meaning that it’s specific about who it was referring to. Only one person which is Christ. Jesus paid a price for us and we are now His. He won’t leave us orphans. Even when you fall, He won’t leave you. He wants you to rise up and keep moving. He is still with you.
Declare to yourself loud: God is with me always.
Lord Jesus, thank you for I know that you will never leave nor forsake me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
