As followers of the Lord we are His bondservants, charged with loving, serving, and obeying the will of God in Christ Jesus. Yet because of His great love, we are so much more than mere servants to Jesus. He calls us friends! Imagine that. The Creator of the universe, God in the flesh, calls us friends! And as His friends He wants a close, personal relationship with Himself. One involving fellowship, love, and partnership. And oh what a privilege it is to know Christ intimately, to learn the mysteries of God, and to call Him friend!
