I Am a Friend of God

Posted: November 04, 2017

Romans 5:10-11 "For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God."

God isn't just a distant God up in Heaven. He bends down to listen to us, He cares about us, and He wants to be in a friendship with us. When things get tough, we tend to blame God for our circumstances. We think of him looking down at us with his arms crossed, but we can't forget the gentle side of God. He is the ultimate friend because he will never let us down. 

God, thank you for bending down to listen to me. Thank you for sending your Son so that I could get to know you. I pray that today I will rejoice and remind myself that I am your friend. Amen.
