A Friend of God — 11 Comments

  1. Hi Barbie,
    Great post! It just amazes me that our Holy God, Creator of all calls us friend. How much He loves us and just really wants to have a relationship with us. That is Christianity, not rules and regulations but relationship with the Creator. 
    I find that I am a bit to informal with God, I love to call Him Daddy, brother and friend and He has reminded me that He is holy and, at times, requires for me to acknowledge this. Not always does He ask me to lay prostrate in front of Him, most often He just wants to chat with me but there are times when His presence requires bent knees or lying prostrate in front of Him.
    I guess if I brought it into percentage terms I would say 5% of the time God requires to be related as a Holy God the other 95% of the time He just wants me to come to Him casual. Kind of like a parent, I want my kids to understand that I am their parent and need to be respected as such but most often I just want them to come to me with all of their problems and look on me as a friend.


  2. What a beautiful reminder my friend.  God’s love is amazing.  And the fact that He wants to have a relationship w/us is even more amazing.  Blessings to you in your journey of friendship!

  3. I’m amazed that He would call us His friends.    His love amazes me and I’m grateful to know Him as Abba Father, Deliverer, Shield, Strength, Strong Tower, and Friend.

    Bless you!

  4. I never address Him as Friend.  It seems so..common. Yet he wants to be that common to us that we would come to him with love and enjoyment as a friend. thank you for drawing my attention to this.
