“Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness, and he was called God’s friend” James 2.23.
Isn’t that the lowest bar there ever was?
All one needs to do to be the friend
of Him who dwells in high places
is believe what He says–
really believe so that trusting him
frees us from all fear.
And it is one of life’s cooler experiences
when your thoughts naturally turn towards Him,
through the day, and in wakeful nights,
until you realize that, incredibly, mysteriously,
God is your friend.
