Diotrephes and Demetrius
Diotrephes and Demetrius
3 John 1:9-14
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  October 11, 2015

Revelation 2-3 gives us a cameo picture of seven churches, each made up of different church members possessing different characteristics. The Apostle John focuses his attention on two totally different individuals, possibly in one of these churches. Demetrius is much like the church member every pastor wants in his church while Diotrephes would be shunned. Each are in most of our good churches today. There are four different kinds of Christians described in today's lesson and they are in all of our churches. Both Diotrephes and Demetrius would probably fall into one of these categories. Consider these two men and the four categories and honestly conclude what kind of church member you are.
