Faith In Action “Being God’s Friend”

friend happy

I was reading an eBook written by my great friend Werner, who I happened to have morning tea with that morning.

I took a new perspective out of it. Something I had known for an exceedingly long time, and the website is called that: My Lord My Friend.com.

We all have varying degrees of friendship, and we have many acquaintances, people we know but through other people or through areas where we work or live.

We can know about God, and can even believe in Him, but does that mean He is in our close friends group and even in our friends group, or have we kept Him as a person we are just acquainted with.

Proverbs 18 Verse {Message Bible} 24: “Friends come, and Friends go, but a true friend stick by you like family.”

Our Lord and Our Friend wants to have a relationship with us, where we take Him everywhere.

Perhaps we have had trust issues with Friends, will God chastise me, or drop me like some friends when the going gets tough.

Our Lord and Our Friend will never be that kind of friend to us. because He has told us; Hebrews 13 Verse 5: “I will never leave you or forsake you”.

Some might say is it possible to really be God’s friend,

James 2 Verse 23: “Abraham believe God, and it was credited to him for righteousness, and he was called a friend of God.”

Do we just believe in God or Do we believe God?

Matthew 7 Verse 21 to 23:

Verse 21: {Message Bible} “Knowing the correct password—saying ‘Master, Master’, for instance isn’t going to get you anywhere with me.”

Verse 21 {NKJV} “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but He who does the will of my Father.”

Just because you, know a person name or try to hang out with them for a while, doesn’t necessary make you a trusted friend, it is what you do for that person, and not because you have to do it. It is what you do for that person with your free will out of love for that person.

John 13 Verse 34: {Message Bible} “This is how they will recognize that you are my disciple—when they see the love”

Recognized as His disciple, truly then we are like Abraham a friend of God.

God Bless
