There is one person in the whole Bible who had this title: “Friend of God” (James 2:23). What is the support for such a title? As we look over the record of Abraham’s life, we find some special events that support this title.
We can see from these major events in Abraham’s life that he certainly deserved the title. But is he the only person who has such a favored title?
Just hours before Jesus was going to be crucified, He revealed to the disciples a truth about their relationship with Him and the coming of the Holy Spirit (John 13 to 17). During these moments together, He says to them; “You are My friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing” (15:14-15).
What a relationship! Are you experiencing being a friend of Jesus? If not, where are you disobeying the Word of God?
