Promise of the Day: John 15:14

in Promise of the Day


Today’s promise is John 15:14:

“You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.”

Friend with Jesus

Jesus came first and foremost to restore relationship between the Father and His creation. This means opening the lines of communication, and He sent the Holy Spirit to teach us how to access those lines. Yes, we are to obey the commands of Christ in the Word, but it’s in speaking and listening to the Holy Spirit, that we are commissioned and receive direction and wisdom in applying the Word. It is also through Him that we are empowered to fulfill our commission, to the glory of our Lord and Savior. Friendships take time to grow, and there’s no better use of our time than learning to wait on the Lord. Learning to be His friend.

Heavenly Father, I want to know You more each day. I want to be Your friend, to love as You love, speak as You speak, and do as You do. Help me make knowing You the most important thing in my life! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Have a victorious day in the Lord!
