A Privileged Position

Description

Jesus did more than say you and I could call Him our friend. He promises He will call us His friends!

You are my friends if you do what I command (John 15:14, NIV).

What could be a greater privilege than to have Jesus call us His friend? If I told you that the president of the United States was my friend, you would probably snicker. And rightly so. Although I have briefly met him, I don’t really know him, and any “friendship” is based on what I have read about him. But if the president of the United States stated that, “Anne Lotz is my friend,” it would be impressive. It would indicate a relationship based on personal knowledge that he publicly affirmed.

Jesus did more than say you and I could call Him our friend. He promises He will call us His friends! Now that’s impressive! That’s a privileged position!
