‘It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth’ (2 John 4).
John the Elder’s simple joy at the ongoing faithful obedience of believers he has met is neither spectacular news nor salacious gossip. In today’s world of incessant social media feeds, rolling news bulletins and constant coverage of terror, trauma and tragedy the headline “Faithful Christians continue in their discipleship,” would merit virtually no attention. Yet the Living Word that God addresses to us through Scripture indicates that this is cause for “great joy”. It should not be taken for granted, and its importance should not be overlooked. It genuinely gives us joy to know that we are partnering with you as you walk in the truth, and we hope and pray that you will experience joy from seeing those whom you know walking likewise.
