Day 84

FRIEND

 

  "I have called you friends,
for everything that I learned from
my Father I have made known to you."
John 15:15

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, our relationship is that of Father and child, but it is more than that. You are My friend. Friends share heart issues and never withhold the best from the ones they love. Just as My Father has revealed Himself to Me, so will I share those same secrets with you. But remember, good friends spend time together and talk—often.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
To think that You are not only my Father but also my friend! I treasure the quiet walks, the precious talks, and the time You spend with me, Lord. You are never too busy to listen, or to care about my needs. There's no other friend like You, Jesus. There is no other relationship on earth like Yours.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Love is when your best friend gives up his life for you. That's what Jesus did.
