The revelation that Jesus Christ has called us his friends is so profound when fully received as a gift it becomes our greatest form of communion and fellowship. A friendship that moves us beyond pretence and superficiality into a realm of unity with Jesus Christ and the father through our utter dependence on the Holy Spirit who reveals and leads us into all truth John 14:17.
What a friend we have in Jesus, he has called us his friend the one who holds and sustains all things is delighted to call me a friend. It is beyond my comprehension to full understand that God of all creation has called me a friend John 15:15. My heart explodes just pondering the magnitude of his being and yet understanding that he has given himself to me without measure. I have access to the fullness of God through communion with the Holy Spirit .
Lay down one’s life
No greater love than to lay down one’s life for his friends John 15:13
Love is Friendship
