Friendship With The King

Updated on October 30, 2011


Friendship With The King


“ I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead I have called you friends for everything that I learned from the Father I have made known to you.”


John 15 : 15


Do you have a close friend from a royal family ? Or from among the rich and famous ?

Or from the ranks of senators and congressmen ?


It is not easy to have close friends from the higher echelon of the society. I don’t even have a close friend who is a barangay captain . But my best friend is a king. He is King Jesus, the King of all kings. I am so privileged to have a best friend in Jesus. Whenever I am in great need or in an emergency situation, I just call on His Name and soon help is available. Or whenever I am down and lonely, just a simple conversation with Jesus will brighten my day. He is indeed a friend that sticks closer than a brother.


What does it take to be a friend of Jesus ? In order to win Jesus friendship, you must strive to live a pure and blameless life. You must learn to hate SIN. Jesus friends consider “sinning” as a treachery to Jesus. You must also set yourself apart from worldly ways for friendship with the world is an enmity with God. You must also love the people Jesus dearly loves, other believers, and particularly the sinners. You must befriend not only the Christians but the unbelievers too. You must also show a great love and compassion for the poor. You must be willing to help the poor in their time of need.


Jesus is the most humble person who walked the earth Though He is the King of all kings and highly exalted in the heavenlies, He is willing to befriend the most insignificant person on earth and give them worth. He is even willing to befriend the vilest criminal in the world and give new meaning to his life.


Jesus friendship is the greatest treasure in the world. His friendship has been the source of strength, hope and inspiration to innumerable people both in the past and in the present. For me I find perfect security in my friendship with Jesus. His friendship has been the source of my protection, courage and joy in my daily life. Many times I fail but my friend Jesus is faithful at all times. His friendship is unconditional.


Jesus friendship is a great shield in today’s uncertainties and chaotic times.
