In the church around the world, some of the most important and touching songs and hymns express how we are friends of God and what a friend of ours He is. When we think about it, it’s an incredible thought that we, unimportant, average people, could possibly have friendship with Almighty God!
Some might say, “Who do you think you are?” Our answer has to be, I am whom the word of God says I am, and why I am whom I am.” The Apostle Paul explains it this way.
“For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.” (Romans 5:10-11)
