A Friend of God
“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you (John 15:15).”
My Charlee girl is a sweet, friendly, golden doodle. She’s the best of both worlds, a golden retriever mixed with a poodle. I’ve had her since she was 11 weeks old, and now she’s 11 years old. I know her so well: her habits, her desires, and her needs. When I walk through the door, she will always surprise me with a toy! I love my dog.
Relationships with people work the same way. As we spend time with one other, we get to know one other. We develop special friendships that we treasure.
Jesus said, “I have called you friends.”
What does it take to know Jesus as an intimate friend?
I get to know Him through the Word of God. The Bible is His love letter to me.
The best way to get to know Him is to invest time in learning about Him as He reveals Himself in His Word. I discover His character, His purposes for my life, and His provision.
Yet as much, as I know about Him, He keeps surprising me!
His ways are past finding out!
I am a friend of God.
Won’t you join me on this journey?
