"You are My friends if you do whatever I command you."
~John 15:14 (NKJV)
Are you a true friend to God? If you are a true believer, then He is definitely your friend and He calls you His. But do you treat God as if He is your best Friend? Take a moment to think about the qualities you desire in a friend. Actually, just think about all the ways that Christ is such a wonderful friend to you. The Lord makes time for us. He listens to us. The Spirit gives the best advice. Jesus’ love can be shown for us in all that He does. Do you show Him that you appreciate His friendship?
Jesus said we are His friends if we follow His commandments. Praise and worship has its place. Saying, ‘Thank You,” is absolutely necessary, but we are called to follow God’s commandments. When another person does something for us we want to be nice back to them. Who has treated you better than the Lord? Who is a better friend than Jesus? Show God that you are His friend and that you appreciate Him. Not only in what you say, but more importantly through what you do.
