How would you feel when our President Noy would call you his friend?
What would you do when the Queen of England would make you part of her circle of friends?
How will you react when your ultimate celebrity crush would put you in his/her friend zone?
If that would all be me, I’d be very ecstatic! But it would also make ask, why? How did it happen? What did I do to deserve such privilege?
Here’s another one…
How would you feel if the Creator of this world, the Savior of this world, the King of kings, the Prince of Peace, the Son of God would call you His friend?
I have two words – In awe.
Who am I to be called a friend of Jesus? It’s more than a privilege. It’s grace.
We might never be friends with the president, the queen or celebrity, but being a friend of Jesus is very, very possible.
His very own words, “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 15:14-15)
Why would we do what Jesus has commanded us? It’s not a performance. It’s a matter of the heart.
He said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” ( John 14:15)
Do you love your family? Your friends? Why do we do what they ask of us? It’s because we love them and we want them to be happy.
If we love Jesus, then, we are called His friends.
Do you want to be in the circle of friends of Jesus?
Think about it…
Some of my ladies who are also in the Jesus’ zone. 🙂 This was our trip in Baguio.
