Friends, how much do you rely on them?
Our closest friends can be a great comfort to us during our lowest times, but can be also be a great joy to us during our brightest days.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
The above are well known words from John 15:12-15. Although they are well know, do not underestimate the truth and the power in these words.
Linking in with my previous post entitled Everlasting, no matter how many close friends we have, and no matter how much they help and support us, we must always remember that it’s only through God’s help and guidance that they have are there for us.
Pray for your friends.
Pray for the friendship you give to others.
Pray that your friends can always rely on you to be faithful.
Pray that God will use you to inspire and encourage your friends.
Anywhere you are, anywhere you’ve been
I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a Faithful Friend
