True Friendship with Jesus

Description

Yes, Jesus is a friend to His followers, but it is a friendship based on obedience. Complying with Christ creates companionship.

You are my friends if you do what I command.  – JOHN 15:14

Jesus is a friend to His followers. He is Lord, but He is a friend. He is Savior, but He is a friend. He is the Son of God, but He is a friend.

Yes, Jesus is a friend to His followers, but it is a friendship based on obedience. Complying with Christ creates companionship.

If I do not obey Christ’s commands, He does not call me friend. It is through my actions that friendship with Jesus is validated. In obeying Jesus, I can really get to know Him.

Friendship with Jesus bears the fruit of saved souls and solid character. You begin to emulate the attitude, actions, words, and spirit of Jesus, because this is what friends do. Friends look, act, and sound like each other. You know you are a friend of Jesus when Jesus consistently in uences you to be like Him.

When others are around you, does your behavior provide evidence that you’ve been with Jesus? Is it a friendship based on conviction, not convenience; intimacy, not intimidation; and giving, not getting?

As you grow in your friendship with Christ, you better understand His heart, and your prayers align more with His will.
