Friends of Jesus

If God is pleased with Jesus, don’t you think He would be pleased with His friends?

The Father said “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Jesus not only led the disciples. He befriended them. He was their constant companion for three years until His death. He called them friends. 

It is possible for a son to bring home an unwelcome friend but Jesus is not an ordinary son. He is a Son in whom His Father is well pleased. He does the will of the Father. The Father is pleased with the actions of Jesus. Thus, when Jesus declares a friend, the Father will be pleased with the friend of Jesus.

This Table is about fellowship and friendship. You have identified with Christ in His life and death and life. And He has called you friend. And any friend of Jesus is welcome in the presence of His Father. Welcome friends. Eat and drink and be filled.
