Page through an old-time hymnal and notice how often the songwriters referred to the blessings of God‘s friendship. Stop and think what that really means. Friendship on a human level is wonderful, but what about friendship with God? It’s an incredible blessing to have the creator and sustainer of our universe as a friend. Although worshiped by countless heavenly host, He takes great joy in His friendship with us. Are we neglecting the privilege of working with God, the greatest of all friends? Today, with gratitude and awe, let’s spend time with Him in prayer and in reading His word. Remember that Jesus called His followers “friends” (v15). What an honor that we can enjoy that kind of friendship with our Savior! When you spend time with God, you invest in a forever friendship.
