God asks all of us to be His friends. Think about that for a moment. Our Creator, our Redeemer, our Advocate wants to be our friend. He wants to know, love, and serve us as friends do. He wants us to be with Him as much as He is with us. He constantly builds our relationship up through grace and compassion. He does small and great things for us and our good just as a good friend would. It is only right and good that we respond in kind to Him and do what He calls us to do... to love Him and all His children as He loves us.
Are we living up to our calling to be friends of our Lord? How do we make God known to others? What can we do to become better prophets of the Word?
O Lord, make us into good and faithful friends to you and all your children.
