1 Jn 3 IMITATING GOOD
Sunday March 20, 2022.
3 Jn 1:11
Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God: John exhorted his friend Gaius to imitate what is good not evil, for Diotrephes was setting an abominable example by wanting to be the center of attention and using his power to keep certain believers out of the church 3 Jn 1:9,10. John described Diotrephes as an evil person who doesn’t truly know God.
Application: if people are questioning our faith, it means we are not imitating Jesus and should take inventory to make sure we are truly in the Lord 2 Co 13:5.
