2 John 12–13 (ESV)

Final Greetings

12 Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink. Instead I hope to come to you and talk face to face, so that our joy may be complete. 

13 The children of your elect sister greet you.


The apostle is planning to come and set straight all outstanding issues. Until then, the congregation has his warning and admonition to stand firm in the faith. You, too, have the apostle’s testimony and all of Holy Scripture. Abide in God’s revelation and beware of strange teachings that diminish the person and work of Jesus, who is your salvation and joy.


I pray: Lord, grant us to remain faithful to Your teaching. Protect us from deception, and grant us fellowship with all faithful sister congregations so that at Your coming our joy may be complete. Amen.



Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 2184.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
