Good morning people who live for the glory of God
John 15:14 NIV You (Believers) are My (Jesus) friends if you do what I command.
I want to be a friend of Jesus and I’m sure you do too.
This verse tells us how.
Obedience that is born out of intimacy with God (as this is the whole context of John 15) shows Jesus that we are His friend.
The truth is, we can be saved but still live largely self-centred and self-led lives. But this is not what friends do.
Friends don’t give lip service, nor are they more focused on themselves than on others.
When it comes to God and us, my simple yet direct question to us all today is:
“How’s our intimacy with and obedience to God going?”
