So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God. – Romans 5:11 (NLT)
Friends are great! They’re there for you when you’re down, they listen like no one else will, and they seem to always have your back in hard times. As great as your friends are, there will be times when they’ll let you down. They might not say or do the things that you wanted them to. However, there’s a friend that will never let you down, God.
The great thing about a friendship with God is that its forever. God will never leave you, let you down, or forget about you. God paid a huge price to be able to have a friendship with you. He gave His son Jesus to die in our place, and now we have the right to be called a friend of God.
Today remember that you’ve got an awesome friend in God. He’ll never give up on you or let you down! Be sure to thank Jesus for making us able to be friends of God.
