Friend of God

But as for you, Israel my servant,
Jacob my chosen one,
descended from Abraham my friend…Is. 41:8

God refers to lots of people as “my servant” and “chosen.” Fewer are called “friend.” Friends do more than depend and entreat, adore and obey. Friends interact and listen and enjoy companionship with one another.

Lord, I am awed that it’s possible. I want a relationship with You that causes You to call me “friend.”
