There is something so very comforting about Jesus himself referring to me as His friend. He confides in me and has shared everything with me. That is a very intimate relationship. All we have to do is follow Him. It is so simple, why do people make it so hard to be a Christian. Jesus is there any time and all the time. We always have that special friend we can count on to get us through anything. We even have a full instruction book that He is giving us free of charge.
O - Jesus is my friend. He confides in me. All I have to do is be faithful to him. How is that different than any other friendship or intimate relationship we have?
A - I will be faithful to Jesus Christ. I will confide in Him and give Him everything I am and everything I have. I will tell others how they can be friends with Christ as well. That is a lot simpler than asking them to be saved or accept Jesus now that I think of it. How easy to say "let me introduce you to my friend Jesus"
P - Lord I thank you so much for your friendship. I thank you for confiding in me. I pray I will always be faithful to you and will always confide in you first and foremost. Lord, I pray for ways to introduce you to all my other friends and family. I pray I am given ways to show them how they too can form the ultimate friendship.
