Last Week’s Sermon Summary
This Week’s Sermon Outline
Scripture: 2 JOHN 7-13 • Sermon: REV TAN KAY KIONG
True Love
The Apostle John wrote to warn various congregations about deceivers who have gone out claiming to be
Christians. In the first part of his letter, he reminds them that everything must be based on true love.
Two Urgent Ways to Overcome Deception:
Main Points
A. Be Spiritually ____________________. (2 John 7-8)
“watch yourselves …”
A. Our Love Must be Anchored in Truth (vv. 1-3)
1. When John says he loves the church “in truth” (v. 1a) – he’s saying that true love must be anchored in truth.
2. The danger many face is trying to run from truth. We do so through addictions to gaming, pornography, alcohol,
etc. There is a less obvious form which is addiction to social media. It is hard for us to be in anchored in truth if
we have more Facebook time than face time with God in His word.
B. Our Love Must be Attested by Obedience (vv. 4-6)
1. John writes that love is defined by obedience to commands (v. 6a). But it’s not merely obeying commands.
Because then it may end up with us being “religious” rather than in a living relationship with the living GOD.
2. Indeed, John writes in vv. 5b and 6b that the command of GOD is that we love one another. That is the very
basis of true love – for one another – that attests to the reality of Jesus Christ (Jn 13:34 – 35).
B. Be Steadfastly _____________________. (2 John 9-13)
“whoever abides in the teaching…”
GOD’s love is true love because it is based on truth and He acted to secure our freedom to truly love.
