 FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE STUDY

Most see our Lord as some far off deity and could never imagine Him being their FRIEND.

Let's look at what the Bible says about this.

But, before we do ...

I wanna share something that Jesus said:

Luke 16:9
And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
 

Jesus is saying that we should befriend those who may not deemed as being socially acceptable by the majority.

But why?

Well, let's look within the Bible for TRUTH ...

 

FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE

FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE STUDY ON FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE MEANING WITH FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE


Jesus Himself was called a friend of sinners …

Matthew 11:19
The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
 

Wisdom is justified of her children?

The Religious leaders of that time looked upon things from a carnal point of view.

Their own !!!

Jesus was sharing that there is a different Spiritual viewpoint and Wisdom is of the Spirit, which they lacked and the chosen children of God that could HEAR possessed … These souls understood and justified the Wisdom within God’s choice to reach for the lost.

So, was Jesus a friend of sinners?

Let's go see ...

FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE TRUTH WITH FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE

Jesus made it clear that we are to befriend these souls who are looked down upon by others and not just those we deem as being socially acceptable by others in our lives.

Luke 14:12-24
Then said He also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.  But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Then said He unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:  And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come

 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.

 These same souls who the world finds unworthy and TOO sinful are the ones that Jesus has chosen to come to HIS Marriage Supper, so it is wise to befriend em now cuz they are gonna be there with Jesus’ arm around em.

Pssssssssssssssssssssssst …  ALL Christians and those called to be Christian are one of these souls.

Let’s read on a bit more:

Luke 14:25-27
And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
 

Did we read that correctly?

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple

Is Jesus saying that we are to hate our family members?  

He is saying we are to serve Him and to allow NOTHING or NOBODY to come between He and us. This includes family and friends who may have worldly views within their mind and heart.

This brings to mind and heart these Words:

James 4:4
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
 

Let’s look back at what Jesus was sharing in the book of Luke

Luke 14:28-30
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
 

One should prepare and step forth in 100% Faith and devotion to his or her cause. You are not quite living, until you find something worth trading it all up for and even dying for. No looking back.

Jesus is worthy.

Jesus continues:

Luke 14:33-35
So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

 So ,we are to have a fiery passion in serving God and do so with UNCONDITIONAL LOVE for all others and NO partiality as to the social status of HIS children.

James 3:17
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
 

 We are to befriend ALL of God’s children … Just as Jesus did for us when we were so very lost.

He BEFRIENDED US when we were at our lowest point. He even laid down His life for us as a friend:

John 15:13-14
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for His friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

So, is Jesus a friend of sinners?

The answer is YES ...

 Just as He befriended YOU

AND ……. We show ourselves as HIS Friend by obeying and following Him because we BELIEVE.

It is our FAITH that shows our friendship TO Him:

James 2:23
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham BELIEVED God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

Just after the Lord’s Prayer in the Book of Luke, Jesus shares an interesting analogy I wanna share:

Luke 11:5-8
And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.

After this analogy …

Then Jesus said …

Luke 11:9-13
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
 

 Jesus is saying that the relationship that we have between us and our Heavenly Father is better than that of a friend and better than that of a family member. That HE is always there for us. 24/7 …….

Are YOU a friend TO God?

FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE PROMISE AND FRIEND OF GOD BIBLE HOPE

Is it a one or two way friendship you have with Jesus? Are you willing to do anything For HIM as He would and DID for you? Are you always there for Him as He is you? Or do you allow the world to come between you and your Friend?

It is obvious that overcoming the world is the hardest part of our relationship with our Lord. Kinda like when the moon asked the sun "why is it that I oft times sit in darkness" ... The sun responded, "it is cuz you let the world came between us" ...

The SON is saying the same thing. Escape the darkness in your lives, by becoming a better friend to and for HIM. He is waiting to enhance the Friendship. He has done His part by showing His Unconditional Love for you by suffering beyond our imagination and then dying a most horrible death … For YOU.

It is YOUR turn to show your Unconditional Love for Him by serving Him in FAITH and allowing NOTHING or NOBODY to come between you and He as to establish the best Friendship Foundation you can, with He who Loves you so very much……..

TRUE Friendship … Is a Two way street. It is not 50/50 … It is 100/100
