John 15:15: I have never called you servants, because a master doesn't confide in his servants, and servants don't always understand what the master is doing. But I call you my most intimate friends, for I reveal to you everything that I've heard from my Father.
John 15:15 (Mirror Bible): I do not communicate with you on a slave - boss basis; slaves have no clue what their Master is about to do. I talk to you as my friends, telling you everything that I have heard in my conversation and intimate association with my Father. This I explain to you in the clearest possible terms.
Monday is here, and we are well on our way into another New Year. Off we go! Many confuse their relationship with Jesus as a "Master-Servant" relationship……..when it is actually a "Best Friend" relationship.
Read today's scripture with me……, " I have never called you 'servants', because a master doesn't confide in his servants, and servants don't always understand what the master is doing." Jesus is in us, and we are in Him (John 14: 20). He resides in us and in our lives. He does not treat us as servants but as friends. Read on….., " But I call you my most intimate friends, for I reveal to you everything that I've heard from my Father." Think about this. He (Jesus) reveals to us everything from our Father. Father, Son, and Spirit are ONE, as we are ONE in them. Jesus is our friend… our best friend.
Take a moment to meditate. Place your hands over your heart…..Breath in……Jesus, You are my Friend…..Breathe out…..We are one in God (Father-Son-Spirit)……Breathe in…... I am aware of Your presence in me, Holy Spirit……Breathe out…..Bless this day.
Monday here we are walking with and in our Friend Jesus...... Breathe in…..Breathe out.
Let's pray……, "Father, help us to know that Jesus is our Friend and that You and we are ONE. Bless this day. Protect us and our families. We come to You in the name of Jesus." All together, say, "Amen."
Pray for one another.....
