While almost everyone longs for friendship, we may never experience one that lasts a lifetime—at least not on earth. In John 15, however, Jesus revealed what a deep, abiding, and life-changing friendship with Him looks like. As Alistair Begg explains, for the believer, relationship with Christ involves intimacy, obedience, and the unending joy His great love provides. Even better, when we experience love from Christ, that same love can then be extended to others.
9As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.
