Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
When I develop communications with someone, care about his/her well-being, faithfully keep that person in mind and heart, and share mutual consolations and desolations with him/her, then that one becomes an extraordinary person to me, that is, a ‘friend’. Jesus invites me and you to not only serve his as Prince of Peace, as our Master and Redeemer; he also calls us to become friends with him, now and forever. Jesus holds up his side of our friendship through the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful events of life –will I faithfully be-friend him? Am I willing to enter into the life of Jesus, to know him more clearly and love him more dearly? Christ Jesus, teach me how to be great friends with you.
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing and make music. (Psalm 57:7)
Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do in love.
