I AM A FRIEND OF GOD


I love my friends. I enjoy spending time with them, doing things together and I enjoy our conversations most of all. But my best friend is with me at all times. My best friend is Jesus. Now this relationship is different. I don’t physically hear Him when we have conversations, but I do feel remarkably refreshed at the end of our “conversation” (prayer) and I truly enjoy my time with Him. Scripture tells me I can be God’s friend. Other people have been:

“But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend. Isaiah 41:8

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend. James 2:23

One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend. Proverbs 22:11

All we have to show is our faith and Jesus will call us friend:

When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Luke 5:20

Have you considered that you can be God’s friend? How close is your friendship with God? He has already initiated the relationship. All we have to do is respond.

Walk in His Light,

Julie
