2nd John Chapter 1 - American Standard Version

1
The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth; and not I only, but also all they that know the truth;
2
for the truth`s sake which abideth in us, and it shall be with us for ever:
3
Grace, mercy, peace shall be with us, from God the Father, and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
4
I rejoice greatly that I have found [certain] of thy children walking in truth, even as we received commandment from the Father.
5
And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
6
And this is love, that we should walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, even as ye heard from the beginning, that ye should walk in it.
7
For many deceivers are gone forth into the world, [even] they that confess not that Jesus Christ cometh in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.
8
Look to yourselves, that ye lose not the things which we have wrought, but that ye receive a full reward.
9
Whosoever goeth onward and abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the teaching, the same hath both the Father and the Son.
10
If any one cometh unto you, and bringeth not this teaching, receive him not into [your] house, and give him no greeting:
11
for he that giveth him greeting partaketh in his evil works.
12
Having many things to write unto you, I would not [write them] with paper and ink: but I hope to come unto you, and to speak face to face, that your joy may be made full.
13
The children of thine elect sister salute thee.

Daily Golden Verse

1st John 4:7-16
[4:7] Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is begotten of God, and knoweth God. [4:8] He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. [4:9] Herein was the love of God manifested in us, that God hath sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. [4:10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. [4:11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. [4:12] No man hath beheld God at any time: if we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us: [4:13] hereby we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. [4:14] And we have beheld and bear witness that the Father hath sent the Son [to be] the Saviour of the world. [4:15] Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God. [4:16] And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him.
