Friendship, love, and are they trustworthy?
In life we meet lots and lots of people some stay in our life and some go quickly. Some people we can trust and others we need to stray from. Friendship is very important. We all want to have friends, Love someone, and make a impact on people. The main question when people come and go is why did they leave and are they trustworthy?
John 15:12-15 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his LORD doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
What this is saying is we should love one another and he says this is my commandment meaning his divine rule. It is telling us to lay down are life for friends not necessarily a physical death but someone who is willing to go out of there way to help friends in times of need or trouble. To be friends with God and live with God and Jesus to put them first. To be God’s servants. To spread the Gosiple truthfully within our daily lives. When you feel lost and no feel you have no where else to turn who is your greatest friend? God the father and Jesus the son. The Holy Spirit is inside you so if you cry out to him he will hear you.
21Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. 22Whosofindeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. 23The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly. 24A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friendthat sticketh closer than a brother.
What this is saying is the words we speak, the truth we talk, the messages we send, and how we promote God’s word can eaither give us everlasting life and being able to eat the speritiual fruit and grow more with God. Who ever finds a wife and treath her right is favored and kept safe/Holy with the Lord. People who use their money for bad things will have to answer. Always be friendly to everyone live a life that shows your not just talking with God your walking with God!
A friendship with God is so important we often times get lost in a world doing sinful things. We need to repent, Truely be sorry for our sins, Pray to God and Jesus, and Join a church that will help us grow more to know the Lord that will preach the true WORD of God! People do it now because if you die sinful you will not have everlasting life.
