The Friend of God
Cool, how low that bar is. All one needs to do to be accounted righteous, and to be God’s friend is to believe.
And it’s one of life’s cooler experiences when your thoughts naturally turn towards Him, through the day, and in wakeful nights, until you realize that God, incredibly, mysteriously, is your friend.
That is an amazing thing about the Christian faith–the very low bar. The generous, immense rewards promised in return for very simple actions.
John 7: 37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
Ignite that thirst in me, Lord. Remind me to come.
Fill me with your streams of living water–which will then naturally flow out of me.
