Firstly a message from me and a few FRIENDS of mine (the staff of Every Nation Church Singapore)
Tonight at EN CENTRAL we talked about friends. What may be our desire for friendship, and how God the Creator designed friendship. The main difference between what is commonly deemed friendship in todays disposable social networking climate for friendship, as opposed to God’s model of “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13) is simple. One focuses on benefiting, the other focuses on serving.
The challenge was laid for all of us – to be friends like Christ is to us. He not only made statements like the one recorded above about friendships being defined primarily in self sacrifice. He laid down His life so that you and I could be called His friends.
Consider my brain blown away yet again by God’s love for us… He calls you FRIEND.
