In Christ — Friends!

Day 3230: Tis the season to be jolly, but I’m actually ???

Scripture: No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. John 15:25

Thoughts/questions: Friends, not acquaintances, are to be treasured. True friends can be counted on when others fade. True friends will be at your funeral!  So many factors are involved in the quality relationship we call friends, that true ones are sometimes hard to find.

And Jesus has called us His friend! Sometimes it seems like this might take away from His true status as Almighty God. We are to consider Him as our friend, but we must be careful not to equate Him to our buddies. He is that true friend – that friend Who laid down His life for His friends – us!

We are blessed that He considers us friends, and He is our friend with an asterisk. *So much more than any mere earthly relationship. The real deal!

So, we are to be thankful He calls us friend, and humbled to be able to call Him the same!

Suggested Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for being my friend . . .
