Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

November 30

Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.

2 John 12-13

We have a tendency to get tripped up by that which we don’t understand. For example, we wonder what God will do with those who are seemingly and sincerely tricked by the cults or isolated in regions of the world where they never hear the Gospel.

In answer to such questions, the Lord says to you and me through the Apostle John, ‘Hold on. I’m coming soon. Everything will make sense when you see Me face to face.’

In the meantime, we are to do what we do understand: we are to stay away from those who propagate heresy, and we are to preach Christ to people with a sense of urgency. We must do what the Word says and let God do what He wants to do rather than say, ‘I don’t have to witness to him. I don’t have to share with my neighbor. They’ll probably make it to Heaven anyway. My kids are probably saved; I don’t want to bother them.’
