Love and Friendship

Keep today Holy and ensure you strengthen your Love and Friendship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Search your heart to make sure you are surrounding yourself with true friends; friends of Jesus Christ.

“One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24, ESV).

Not everyone you may call friend is your friend. However, Jesus Christ is a friend and more. As an Ambassador and Disciple of Christ, we are to love our neighbors as God loves us, but that does not make them our friend. Jesus said in Matthew 5:44 to love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. God wants us to love our enemies but not make friends with the whole world. If we make friends with everyone, then we are friendly with Gods enemies.

In James 4:4 it is written, “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God” (ESV).

Loving your neighbors does not mean you have to be their friend. Befriend Jesus and then you will know who you can befriend in the world; they too will be a friend of Christ.

God Bless,
