2 John 11-3 Religion turns compliments into real expressions of respectand love. And old disciple is honourable; an old apostle andleader of disciples is more so. The letter is to a nobleChristian matron, and her children; it is well that the gospelshould get among such: some noble persons are called. Familiesare to be encouraged and directed in their love and duties athome. Those who love truth and piety in themselves, should loveit in others; and the Christians loved this lady, not for herrank, but for her holiness. And where religion truly dwells, itwill abide for ever. From the Divine Persons of the Godhead, theapostle craves grace, Divine favour, and good-will, the springof all good things. It is grace indeed that any spiritualblessing should be given to sinful mortals. Mercy, free pardon,and forgiveness; for those already rich in grace, need continualforgiveness. Peace, quietness of spirit, and a clear conscience,in assured reconciliation with God, together with all outwardprosperity that is really for good: these are desired in truthand love.
