Topic: God Is My Best Friend
SCRIPTURE: John 15:15
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
It is possible to be God’s friend. Not only is it possible, but it is also a right afforded to you exclusively as a child of God. This verse gives us a potent key to understanding the secret of friendship with God, and it is given to us by God Himself in the person of Jesus. He tells His followers, “I have called you friends; for [because] all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” God says you’re My friend because I make my Word known to you.
Do you see how easy it is to be called God’s friend? His friend is the one who is ready to hear what He has to say, the one with whom He shares His secrets.
The Church at large has grasped the revelation that God is love (agape). We must also understand that out of His agape love, He pours out His friendship love (phileo) in our hearts. He demonstrates His affection for you by sharing His Word with you. And when you give attention to the Word of God, you are demonstrating your readiness to be His
friend and to receive His affection.
You are taking an interest in what interests Him, and what interests God more than anything is that His Word is heard and believed. Even as you are reading this Good News today, you are being a friend of God.
The Lord finds rest with me. I am His trusted friend in whom He confides His secrets. I receive His affection by receiving His Word with joy. I am always ready to hear whatever He wants to share with me. I am God’s bestie.
