2 John 12–I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete.
God did not design the Christian life to be lived in a vacuum. He desires that we share with others face to face. We are so encouraged to see each other face to face and share in the message and encouragement of God. John knew that and desired to be together with them as much to encourage himself as to encourage them. Do we look forward to meeting together with other believers? Only as we come together we can experience that joy.
Father, thank You for friends who believe in You and with whom I can share and encourage and find joy together. I will seek out other believers and will not try to live this Christian life on my own.
