Friends With Christ

posted on May 20


 Friends with Christ

“I don’t call you servants any longer, because servants don’t know what their masters are doing. Instead, I call you friends, because everything I heard from my Father I have made known to you.”      John 15:15 (CEB)

    A good friendship takes time, effort, and is not one-sided. John 15:15 tells us Christ is our friend. Christ would like to visit often with his friends just as we do our friends. We visit and talk with Him through praying and reading the Bible (His Word). If we go to Him in prayer, only asking for things such as: better job, bigger houses or better health are we his friend? Asking for things is not wrong because He said so in John 15 but we need to do more than that to be a friend. We must thank Him for all the answered prayers and all the blessings He has provided in our lives. We must thank Him, praise Him, and worship Him in prayers as well. We need to talk with Him as we do with all our friends. We need to let Him know how much we need and love Him. Let Him know all our thoughts and hopes for our life and our families’ lives. Then to be a good friend, we need to listen to him though reading His “Word” and hearing with our hearts. Real friends give each other time and effort to maintain the friendship and we must do the same for Him. Make time to read the Bible, go to church, and time to do Christian work. 

    Thank you, Christ, for being our friend. We praise you and worship you. Amen.
