“I am Christ’s friend…”

John 15:15 says “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I call you friends…”

Have you ever had a friend you were so close to you couldn’t imagine life without them? This friend seemed to be a source of life, of joy, of laughter, and confidence. Someone who had your back no matter who was coming against you? I hope we all have at some point. Maybe you’ve drifted apart through the years, yet remembering that friend brings a smile to your face.

The closest and best friend to me was the One there for me when I was in prison, the One who was there when I no longer knew who I was, the One who pointed me forward when sin seemed to have destroyed everyone and everything I had known. The One who wouldn’t let me remain stuck in shame and regret. The One who loved my children even more than I did and was there every day I couldn’t be. The One who far surpassed my feelings of loneliness as He bore the weight of not only my sins, but the sins of the world, while no one even had any real clue what was happening. He was there for every tear, every celebration. Every loss and every gain. Jesus Christ my eternal friend!!
