“To the elect lady and her children whom I love in truth, not only I, but all those who have known the truth because the truth which abides in us and lives in us forever. Grace, mercy and peace in truth and love”. John is balancing light and love. The wrath of God and the love of God. Truth and love.
Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life
Jesus is the life (1 John)
Jesus is the truth (2 John)
Jesus is the way (3 John)
We are lost. Jesus is the way.
We are deceived. Jesus is the truth.
We are dead in our trespasses and sins. Jesus is the life.
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me’.” John 14:6
