Revelation of the Word:
THEME: FRIEND
John 15:12‭-‬14 ‬‬‬‬‬

This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

INSIGHT
-Friend in Greek is written as phílos which comes from the root phil and means someone dearly and loved in a personal and intimate way. Also a trusted confidant held dear in a close bond of personal affection.
-As we continue to rejoice in the Lords’ death and resurrection, His love for us is revealed everyday. Jesus is our greatest friend, since He lay down His life for us and reconciled us to the Father. As human beings, we are called to share love with one another in the cause of our interactions and relationships through the help of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we are bogged down in life and are low in spirit; in need for friendly consolation or companionship. Jesus reminds us that He is our greatest friend having sacrificed His life for us. Sacrifice is a fundamental quality of a good friendship. In 1 Samuel 18:4; we find Jonathan the King’s son, who jeopardized his life to help David when his father wanted to assassinate him. Jonathan’s act of sacrifice showed his commitment to David and to their friendship; even giving him his own attire when he needed him most. This is the kind of sacrifice that Christ calls us to uphold for one another. To sacrifice our time, resources, skills etc for our friends. As friends of Jesus, we are also called to take heed to His commandments, to love one another and to understand His truths; as we have been chosen to bear fruit that remains.
PRAYER
We thank You Father for this beautiful day that You have day, we rejoice and are glad in it. Guide us Jesus and direct us in our diverse activities today and
Blessed Week

Luke 11:5‭-‬8‬‬‬‬‬‬

And He said to them, “Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within and say, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you’? I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.
