Friend – by Eric

friend1No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. – John 15:15

What does it make you think of when you consider that God calls us friend?  It’s easy to think of God in typical ways.  He’s my Lord.  He’s my Savior.  He’s the King.  He’s all-powerful.  God has many formal ‘titles’ and they are all true and meaningful, but how often do I think of God as a friend.  A friend that loves me and wants to walk through life with me.  A friend who cares about my thoughts, my feelings, my hurts and my joys.  A friend who cares about me and the details of my life.

It’s easy to ask, Who am I that God would consider me a friend?  But He does and I should value myself knowing that God values me.

Father, help me to see you as a friend as you see me and help me to draw close to you knowing that life is always better when I walk side by side with You.
