I shall not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father.’ (John 15:15)
Dearly beloved, what a wonderful friend we have in Jesus, don’t you agree?
He’s all that we can ask for in a friend.
He loves selflessly. He helps without any expectations of returns. He hears your gripes and complains. He laughs with you. Cries with you. He doesn’t judge you. He laid down His very life for us. And He rose again so that you too may live the abundant life He died to give you.
And yet, at the same time, He is the King of kings, the Lord of lords. He’s the one whom the winds and the waves listen to. He’s the one who hangs the star in the heavens.
How amazing that this same person, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of hosts, wants to have an intimate friendship with you?
To know your hopes and dreams. To share your burdens and carry your yoke.
To comfort you when you’re down. To lift you up when you’re weak. To simply be with you – because He cares for you.
Oh! What a friend we have in Jesus. How blessed are we to call Him our friend and brother!
Be Greatly Blessed!
Father, thank you for the friendship we have with Jesus.
Not only is He our Lord and Savior, He’s also our intimate friend.
Your Word says, that we’re no longer servants, but friends.
What a beautiful, wonderful, divine friendship that is.
May we continually grow closer to each other.
How wonderful it is to be able to call Jesus our friend.
Help me and guide me, that I too, may be worthy enough to call myself Jesus’s friend.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
