Jesus Is Our Friend


How can you teach your family that Jesus wants to be their friend?


Name one good friend and tell God something you love about that person. Then thank God for him or her.


Tape a large sheet of paper to the wall. Get your family to write as many words as you can to describe good friends (great, super, fantastic).


Jesus had 12 disciples who were His friends. You can become a friend of Jesus, too. When you follow and obey Jesus just as His disciples did, Jesus calls you His friend. What kind of friend is Jesus? In John 15:13, Jesus says, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." That's what Jesus did for His disciples and for you.


- How do the words on your sheet of paper (from Diving In) also relate to Jesus?

- What does it mean when Jesus calls you His friend?

- How is Jesus different from our other friends?

John 15:15
