An important question:  Are you Jesus’ friend?”  

Some common definitions or evaluations of friendship  

  • Money
  • No criticisms
  • Janice Joplin- “A friend is someone who accepts me with all of my faults and helps me to overcome them.”

Insights into being Jesus’ friend:  

1.       What is offered—intimacy with deity    

2.       What is obliged or required   

  • All -inclusive obedience- John 15:14 “Do whatsoever I command”.   
  • Arbitrary obedience—John 15:1`4 “Do whatsoever I command”  

3.       What is obtained or received   

  • Jesus’ ongoing presence   
  • Jesus’ released power
