2 John 8-11

Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward.
Anyone (Everyone) who goes too far (goes on ahead) and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
2 John 8‭-‬11 NASB

🌹God of refuge and strength I pray for Your refuge and strength in a time when tribulation like we have never seen comes upon us. I pray I will watch myself and hold to Your truth learned through Your word and godly mentors in my life. I pray I will plant and water and have confidence to receive the full reward according to my labors. Guide me Lord and keep me from going ahead of You, by abiding in Your Word, Jesus, and in You, Father.
I ask protection and discernment, God, to recognize and keep away from those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to Your teaching and to turn away from them. Keep me free from sin Lord, giving me the ability to show mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh. Keep me, as You commanded, from every brother and sister who leads an unruly life so as not to be swayed to that lifestyle and thus find myself participating in their evil deeds. Help me to avoid the unfruitful deeds of darkness and expose those deeds. May Your mercy fall on me. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
Mark 13:19/1 Corinthians 3:8/Hebrews 10:35/Romans 16:17/2 Thessalonians 3:6/Ephesians 5:11/1 Timothy 5:22/Jude 1:23 NASB

1 John 4:13-15

By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 4:13‭-‬15 NASB

How awesome a God You are! Blessing me with Your Holy Spirit! Thank You, God, for the assurance of knowing You abide in me because of Your awesome gift of the Holy Spirit. I am no longer in the flesh but in the Spirit. I belong to You, Lord God!!!
Under the power of the Holy Spirit I will testify and proclaim eternal life through Jesus Christ who was with the Father and was being manifested to us, the Savior of the world. For You, Father, did not send Your Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. “The one who confesses the Son has the Father also”. For this I am eternally grateful, God. Thank You.
I confess with my mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in my heart that You, almighty God raised Him from the dead! Thank You, Father, for my salvation. In the name of my Redeemer I pray, amen.

1 John 3:23-24

This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. 1 John 3:23‭-‬24 NASB

God, Father, You have commanded me to believe in Your Son, Jesus Christ. It is the true work of Yours, Father, that I believe in Jesus whom You sent. It is You who sent the true bread out of heaven. I am gratefully blessed to be called Your child, God, for I believe in the name of Jesus! You, Lord, have commanded to love one another, even as You have loved. By the power of the Holy Spirit abiding in me others will know I am Your disciple by the love I have for others. Holy Spirit teach me as I read the Word. Hide it in my heart so the love of God will truly be perfected in me. I pray I walk in the same manner as Jesus walked with full assurance that I am abiding in Him. Thank You, God, for Your Holy Spirit. John 6:29/John 6:32/John 1:12/John 13:34-35/1 John 2:5-6 NASB

1 John 3:17-20

But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things.
1 John 3:17‭-‬20 NASB

God, You are great!! I draw near to You with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith; please draw near to me. I cleanse my hands before You seeking Your forgiveness for that which condemns me. I then can willingly approach Your throne with a pure heart and clean hands. You know my heart and all things God.
All that I have, Lord is Yours. You have given me all I possess physically and spiritually. God, I pray that I will not close my heart to a brother and/or sister in need. How can I if You are abiding in me? Transform my heart to love in deed and truth. You abundantly bless Lord God. I pray I will freely open my hand to my brothers/sisters in need and  generously lend him/her sufficient for his/her need in whatever he/she lacks. All to and for Your glory! Amen

🌹You shall generously give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings. For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.’

1 John 3:4-6

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him.
1 John 3:4‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus, You are the propitiation for my sin but not mine alone but for those of the whole world. I have been redeemed with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of my Savior Jesus Christ. Thank You, God, for Your law because through it I was made aware of my sin. Sin is lawlessness that brings about wrath. I thank You God for sending Jesus, who knew no sin to be sin on my behalf, that I could become Your righteousness in Jesus. How can I possibly thank You enough for this precious gift bestowed upon me except to practice righteousness in Jesus through Whom I am born again?! I will abide in You and not sin because I am covered in the blood, knowing You and keeping Your commandments and will do good for Your name sake. All praise, honor, and glory to Your name,  in whom I pray.  Amen.
John 1:29/1 John 2:2/1 Peter 1:19/Romans 3:20/Romans 4:15a/2 Corinthians 5:21/1 John 2:29/1 John 2:3/3 John 11 NASB

1 John 2:28-29

Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away (be put to shame before Him) from Him in shame at His (presence) coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born (begotten) of Him. 1 John 2:28‭-‬29 NASB

🌹Holy, holy, holy are You, Lord God, my righteousness, my confidence. Abide in me, Jesus.You are my life and on that day when You appear and my faith is made sight may I be bold and confident, not shrinking away in shame when I am revealed with You in glory. For whoever is ashamed of You and Your words in this adulterous and sinful generation, You, Son of Man, will also be ashamed of them when You come in the glory of Your Father with the holy angels.”

Father, forgive me for wanting to speak from myself, seeking my own glory. I pray I will seek Your glory, the One who sent Jesus, for He is truth, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. I stand bold in Your name Lord God, knowing I was born again, not of blood nor the will of flesh, nor the will of man, but of You, God. And because of this I will see Your kingdom O God and bow in praise before Your Almighty throne of victory! To Your righteousness and glory I pray in Jesus name, amen. Colossians 3:4/Ephesians 3:12/Mark 8:38/John 7:18/John 1:13/John 3:3 NASB

1 John 2:26-27

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
1 John 2:26‭-‬27 NASB

God, You have not left Your people without discernment, direction, or truth revealed. Father You sent Jesus, Your Son, to make this possible in our life. When Jesus ascended He asked on our behalf to give us a Helper, the Holy Spirit, to be with us forever!! How blessed to have an anointing from the Holy One who lives in us and whom we know. Praise You God for the confidence, security and peace my soul knows because You abide in me and I in you. Holy Spirit, teach me all things and bring to remembrance from Your Holy Word all I have read and studied so I will always abide in You. God, may I know the things You have freely given through Your Spirit. Thank You God for letting me know You and the many blessings that have come by You. I give my life to honor You, my God, by the life You have freely given me. In the glorious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

1 John 2:21-24

I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because (know that) no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah)? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
1 John 2:21‭-‬24 NASB

King Jesus, You entered into the world to testify to the truth. The truth from the very beginning. Thank You, Jesus, for the truth that resides in me enabling me to hear Your voice.  You stated, “Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice”. I trust Your truth.
Help me Lord to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.
Thank You God for the truth that has been established in me and is present with me. Through the Holy Spirit of truth residing in me I have fellowship with other believers; and indeed my fellowship is with You Father, and with Your Son Jesus Christ! I love You Jesus and will keep Your word so that the Father and You will love me and come make Your  abode in me. I ask for discernment to recognize the antichrist, remembering the antichrist denies both You Father and Jesus. I praise You for the privilege and honor to know You Jesus and the Father through the Holy Spirit; Three in One.  Glory to my God who has made Himself known to me. In this I rejoice. Amen.

🌹This is the antichrist
and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

1 John 2:9-11

The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now. The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:9‭-‬11 NASB

🌹Jesus, Light of my life. I praise Your presence in my life and thank You for opening my eyes to see the Light of the gospel of Your glory, the image of God.
Lord God, You have purified me from my sin. Under Your guidance and instruction I will
apply all diligence in my faith, supplying  moral excellence, and in my moral excellence, knowledge, and in my knowledge, self-control, and in my self-control, perseverance, and in my perseverance, godliness, and in my godliness, brotherly kindness, and in my brotherly kindness, love. I pray these qualities are in me and are increasing so they will neither render me useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of You, my Lord Jesus Christ. Without these qualities I would be blind, walking in darkness. Let me never forget the purification from sin nor Your fellowship,  Jesus. Those who walk in darkness do not know where they are going for the darkness has blinded them.  I shall walk in Your Light without stumbling for You abide in me. Because You abide in me, I can love my brother/sister. To and for Your glory I pray, amen.

1 John 2:5-6

but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.
1 John 2:5‭-‬6 NASB

Holy, Holy, Holy art Thou, Lord God Almighty!!! Glory, honor and praise belong to You! You gave Your Word to inform, instruct, draw hearts to You. Thank You God for Your holy word! The word is made known along with understanding through You, Holy Spirit. Jesus, by Your example of keeping the Father’s commandments and abiding in His love, I know I need to keep Your word so as to abide in You. Help me daily to deny myself, take up my cross and follow You. I need You God as I cannot bear fruit apart from You. Jesus, I want to follow in Your footsteps, take Your yoke upon myself and continue to learn from You, for You are gentle and humble in heart, and I will find rest for my soul in You. Perfect Your love in me God by my keeping of Your word. All for Your glory I humbly ask. Amen.
