Relationship, Not Religion. – Becoming a Friend of Jesus

John 15:15

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his masters business. Instead I have called you friends, for everything I have learnt from My Father I have made known to you

Being a Christian is about having a loving, relationship with the Lord. When it comes to friendship, it is about respect, support and love for one another. That is exactly what Jesus wants with us. God firstly created us so that He could have a relationship with us and enjoy time together! In through which we glorify Him! 

Due to sin, things have changed since the world was first created in Genesis 1-2, but God’s love always remains the same. He has always been faithful. This is why He sent Jesus to die for our sins in order for us to fully restore relationship with Him, as long as we accept Christ.

John 15:13 

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down His life for His friends

To make it clear, God does not and will never force anybody to do anything. He has given us free will. There are commandments and laws of God that are rooted from love and care.

God is love, God is joy, God is fullness! Everything we could ever wish for in an eternal relationship with somebody.

In Matthew 22:36-40 Jesus said that the main commandment is to love the Lord with all your heart, mind and soul. Then love your neighbour as you love yourself.

Be open and allow Him to work in your heart! He longs to hold you 💗
