Children Of God Walking In Truth

I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. (2 John 1:4)

What a joy it is to see children of God walking in truth.  We hear so many bad reports about God’s people and so much negative publicity.  But we know that there are some who have not bowed down the knee to Baal.  There are some who have not given in to Satan’s devices.  There are some who are not consumed by what the world has to offer.  There are some who are striving to live as God has called us to live.  So many times, folks will rejoice when they hear bad news about a Church or a christian.  News reporters are sure to print the fact that ”They go to this church or to that church.”  You might not believe it but there are even times when Christians like to hear some good gossip, some juicy news on some fellow brother or sister who has fallen into Satan’s trap.     

Shouldn’t we much more be excited about good news within the House of God?  Shouldn’t we be excited when we hear of a Church who is living according to Biblical teaching?  Shouldn’t we be excited about a preacher who is trying their best to live the life they preach about?  Shouldn’t we be excited to hear about a choir member who has stood strong when Satan has attacked them on every side? Shouldn’t we be excited to hear about a christian who was able to stand against adversity?  John says it gave him joy to find Christians walking in truth.  Not just talking the talk but walking the walk.  That is simply living the way God called us to live.  When children of God walk in truth, God is glorified.
