BECOME JESUS’ BFF;
(God Has Called You Into Friendship With Jesus)
TO THE BIBLE 1 Corinthians 1:9 GNB
“God is to be trusted, the God who called you to have fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.”
Abraham was called the “friend of God” because he enjoyed a close fellowship with the Lord (James 2:23). God wouldn’t do anything without telling his friend. In other words, Abraham was God’s BFF. Now, God has called you into fellowship and friendship with His Son Jesus Christ, which means you’re called into oneness, partnership, and union with the Lord Jesus. You have to be in constant communication with the Master. Study His Word to hear from Him; listen in your spirit for His voice, for He has said, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27).
As you fellowship with Him in prayer, His perfect will is unveiled to you; His counsel and guidance for your life are made clear to you. The Holy Spirit is the One that helps you in your fellowship with Jesus, but your heart must be willing. Fellowship is something you do consciously in response to the Master’s love. If you really love Jesus, you should be willing to spend time with Him every day. Remember, He’s the Word become flesh, so you spend time with Him when you spend time studying and meditating on the Word.
Your fellowship with the Lord is unique to you. He doesn’t have, has never had, and will never have a copy of you, and that’s why He cherishes your fellowship and love. You’re His partner and friend, in a way no one else in the world can be. Make Jesus your greatest friend, and walk with Him every day. Your times of personal Bible study, prayer, worship, and praise should be sacred moments; don’t take them lightly. The more you relate with Him through His Word and the Spirit, the more His character and personality are revealed in and through you.
1 John 1:3; John 14:23
Dear Father, what joy it is to know that I can relate with you in love, and enjoy the fellowship of the God-kind! By the power of the Holy Spirit, I enjoy a deeper and richer fellowship with Jesus every day, and through that fellowship, not only is Christ formed in me, His character is revealed through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
