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 my Father I have made known to you.
"What a friend we have in Jesus..." Jesus as my friend is such a comforting thought. I know I don't always think of Jesus as my friend, though. I am too intimidated by Jesus to imagine spending friendship-type time with him. I only know and understand a tiny fraction of what and who Jesus is. But he shared so much with his disciples, they must have truly felt like friends. Today I look forward to others' perspectives on this verse.
Holy Lord, help me to be closer. Draw me closer to you, I pray. Amen
