He has called us friends!

(J.R. Miller “The Book of Comfort”)

“I have called you friends!” John 15:15

If Jesus is our Friend — then . . .He has called us friends!
no need can be unsupplied;
and no sorrow can be uncomforted;
no evil can overmaster us;
we are safe for time and eternity!

Something to ponder:

J.R. Miller: “Every Christian can preach sermons every day, at home and among neighbors and friends–by the beauty of holiness in his own common life. Wherever a true Christian goes, his life ought to be an inspiration. Our silent influence ought to touch other lives with blessing–shining like holy lamps into sad and weary hearts. Our lives ought to be blessings to human sorrow and need all about us.

(Henry Law, “Psalms”)
“Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord will hold me close.” Psalm 27:10

Earthly relationships are easily dissolved.
Affection may decay.
Fickleness begets estrangement.
Distance may part.
Death comes, and desolation sits
where happy fellowship once reigned.

But God’s love is strong, immutable, and
eternal
. His heart beats with tenderness,
and is incapable of diminution or of change.

O Father, ever be a Father unto us!

“Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord will hold me close.” Psalm 27:10
