Hello World…Friendship with God..

What does it mean to be a friend of God?  Have you ever thought about being God’s friend?   Was anybody in the bible every called the friend of God?

As I remember, Abraham was call God’s friend.

In 2 Chronicles 20:7 it ask; Are not thou our God, who did drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel and gave it to the seed of Abraham, thy friend forever?

Isaiah 41:8; But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham, my friend.

James 2:23 and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God and it was imputed unto him for righteousness and he was called the Friend of God.

Three separate scriptures states the Abraham was a friend of God.   What was so special about Abraham that God would call him Friend?  Have you ever thought about what is it that I must do to be called a friend of God’s or to be the apple of His eye as was David?

As I was talking to my friend, I asked the Lord to give me an answer and this scripture came to me immediately.

Proverbs 17:17    A FRIEND LOVES AT ALL TIMES…….

Then my friend said as I read it to her:  “No  matter what, they love one another. They can go through the worst of times together, and the best of times together and see each other over the humps. Like when my daughter said, ‘you don’t love me as much as you love sister.’ She said, “I love you like God loves us, unconditionally …. no matter how you act, no matter what you think, no matter what you do, you are my child and I love you, that will never change. You are MY Child and I love you regardless of how you love me, or whether you love me or not. It is unconditional love I have for you. It will never change.”

Being a friend of God means that your love for Him never waivers and neither does your love for others.  Why?  Because His love for you is unconditional and it never changes. Proof of this is  in what He did when He sent Jesus to pay the price so you could come home.

Sin can not dwell in heaven, so God sent His only Son to die for you …..your job is to believe He did it for you and repent and receive the free gift of unconditional love and believe….

Being a friend of God hung on the cross, it is called Love………..
