Jesus Our BFF (Best Friend Forever)

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

John 15:13–15

The friendship Christ offers us is practical and down-to-earth.  At the same time it is spiritual…essentially allowing us to live in two realms simultaneously – the visible, physical world and the invisible, spiritual, and eternal reality.

Christ should be our best friend as well as our King and we should walk with Him and talk with Him like we would our best friend.  Facing with Him whatever each day brings; pleasures, hardships, adventures, and disappointments.

Nothing is wasted when it is shared with Christ because He has a way of bringing beauty out of the ashes of lost dreams…gleaning Joy out of sorrow…and coaxing peace out of adversity.

It is my prayer today that Christ the King will truly be our best friend.  One who we know will never judge us, but instead will replace our ashes of shame with beauty.  One who, when we are grieving will definitely stand by us and fill our hearts with the oil of gladness.  One who in our times of despair will not duck and hide but  will cover us in garments of praise.

May our best friend Christ be so close to us that  when people see us they will see the righteousness for God in us and know that God Himself is by our side.  Amen.
