Devo of the Week: 2 John, verse 9

“Everyone who does not abide in the teaching of Christ, but goes beyond it, does not have God; whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.”  In a world of “tolerance” and “diversity,” God’s word still challenges and warns us. What does it mean to abide in Christ’s teaching?  What does it mean to “go beyond it?”  Why is this scripture still important for us to hear and apply?  Father, it is always easy for us to make faith comfortable and agreeable to our personal desires and whims.  Keep us focused on Your truth that endures.
