II John 12-13 — “Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.” Due to the COVID pandemic, we have had to deal with restrictions that kept us from seeing our friends and family members in-person. So we understand the sentiment in the closing verses of John’s letter to the elect lady. He knew that when they saw each other and had fellowship, their joy would be full!
Even though the last part of this Epistle contains personal greetings, there are some wonderful truths for us to meditate on. It is a fitting ending for where we find ourselves today.
