Full reward (2 John 1:8)

“Be on your guard!

Thus,

You may not lose

What we have worked for,

But may receive

A full reward.”

βλέπετε ἑαυτούς, ἵνα μὴ ἀπολέσητε ἃ ἠργασάμεθα, ἀλλὰ μισθὸν πλήρη ἀπολάβητε.

This author said, “Be on your guard (βλέπετε ἑαυτούς)!  Thus, you may not lose (ἵνα μὴ ἀπολέσητε) what we have worked for (ἃ ἠργασάμεθα), but (ἀλλὰ) may receive (ἀπολάβητε) a full reward (μισθὸν πλήρη).”  This author reminded his readers that they should be careful.  They should make sure that they do not lose their friendship with God.  They have worked hard to receive the full reward of eternal life with God and Jesus Christ.  They should not throw it away with some foolish activities.  Are you careful about your future eternal divine reward?
