Do you really believe that God desires to have a relationship with you?
While we were God’s enemies, he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Surely, now that we are his friends, he will save us through his Son’s life. And not only that, but now we are also very happy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we are now God’s friends again.
(Roman 5:10-11 NCV)
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master is doing. But I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I heard from my Father.
(John 15:15 NCV)
- Make God our top priority
- Slow down and be quiet
- Decide whose friendship is more important
- Maintain a constant conversation with God
- Trust God in our pain
