“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.”
The cool thing about God is that in as much as He is GOD, and King, and all these awesome things…He can also be our buddy and friend…if we allow Him.
He has availed Himself to walk hand in hand with us…and to face together whatever the day brings: pleasures, hardships, adventures, disappointments.
But we have to take His hand…
…and if we do, like a best friend from childhood…He will share His secrets with us and listen to ours. And when we are in trouble He will be there to lend an ear, a shoulder, and a helping hand.
But we have to take His hand.
Dear God, I know You are always there for me…I am the one who doesn’t come around. But I want that to change. Moving forward in the same way You have shared with me all Your business…grant me the grace to share with You all my business. Amen.
