The Friends of Jesus

John 15:9-17  (ID: 1281)

Many of us yearn for the joy that comes from lifelong friendship. We don’t always find a friend like that here on earth, but Jesus told His disciples in John chapter 15 that God initiates that kind of friendship with us. Alistair Begg explains that when we respond to God’s invitation of friendship, we find joy that won’t fade.


9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
