Be a Friend of Jesus

 I recently got new glasses. They are hard to get used to, but I am trying. It makes me wonder how hard we try to make our relationships at church work. We each have different personalities, and sometimes it seems hard for them all to work together.

John 15:14

  Maybe we do love each other because we are commanded to, but do we like each other? Sometimes we say, “I love them, but I sure don’t like their ways.” If their ways are sinful, then that is good. But if their ways are just different from our ways, then that is not good.

 Jesus is our friend. He looks at each one of us and sees the good in us. He encourages us to do good and to be a better person.

 We should stop and look at our friends. Look past what we think are faults and see good in each one. We are truly Jesus’ friends when we love one another.


Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. John 15:14
