2 John 3-6
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love. It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
From God to us: Grace, mercy and peace.
Our response to God: Love one another, walking in the truth and love, obedience to the command to love one another.
Other Christians' response to us when we respond like this: great joy

Prayer. Lord God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thank you for your gift of grace, mercy and peace. May we respond by living as you would have us live. Let our lives be marked by love. Amen.
