Divine Friendship

Consider the privilege of divine friendship. Jesus described His followers this way:

“You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” – John 15:14 NKJV

The Creator and Righteous Judge of the universe not only provided a way for us to be forgiven, but also a way to know Him as a friend. There is an old hymn that reminds us of this precious truth. Think about the first verse as you go today…

“What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.”

“What a Friend We Have in Jesus” – Joseph Scriven (1855)
