“I will not now call you servants: for the servant knoweth not what his lord doth. But I have called you friends. because all things, whatsoever I have heard of my Father, I have made known to you.”
John 15:15

We are Friends of God

If I would call myself somebody's friend, without his agreement, it would be a lie. However, if somebody calls you a friend, that is fine. 

The best part is, that Jesus himself calls you and me his friends. If Jesus says something, he means it. If this is not enough, please remember about a fact that  Jesus was only saying what he knew, that God the Father is saying. Therefore, God the Father also says that you are his friend.

Are you?

You probably understand, that friendship should be a two way road? I can be your friend, without you being mine (simply helping you out when you need), and that is what Jesus does. His is your friend, no matter what (remember that!). Although, He said that you are his friend, before you actually did anything for him.

I believe, that it is an open invitation, to become one! In other words, any willing person can be a friend of God, just because God issued an open invitation. Will you take advantage of it?
