Friend of God-Tuesday Truth

and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. James 2:23 esv

A friendship with God is a one sided relationship. All of the friendships with we have with other people need some type of balance. None of us want to feel used by another person. We want to know that people are our friends simply because they like us and not because they want something from us. There should a sense of give and take. Well with God it is not that way.

There is nothing you or I can offer as a benefit to the Lord. We need Him. He doesn’t need us. We should take advantage of this relationship as much as we can. This is so amazing for us because God actually wants to be our friend. Even though He totally and completely self-sufficient, He still desires to know us. Why? Because of His great love! Get to know your best friend and get lost in His love today!
