FRIENDSHIP BIBLE STUDY

FRIENDSHIP

WHAT ARE WE TO EXPECT IN FRIENDSHIP?

I would like to talk with you about FRIENDSHIP.

But, before we begin, I wanna take a few minutes to share a lil something with ya from the book of Job ...
 

Job 1:6-8
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

We see that satan (Which is an angel) came and stood in line with all the other angels that report to God. When it was his turn … God asked where he had been. He told God that he had been going to and fro thru the earth and we all know what he was doing. Looking for souls to devour.

God asked satan if he had considered how perfect His servant Job was.
 

Job 1:9-12
Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
 

 Satan said that the only reason Job was so obedient was cuz God was protecting him and he had this perfect lil life. Satan mocked God and said if you let me mess with Job … Your lil human servant you are bragging on will curse you.

God believed in Job and allowed satan to bring tribulation upon Job’s life but satan was not allowed to hurt Job himself.

And mess with Job’s life he did … His livestock was stolen and/or killed. His children were killed by their house falling in on them. But, did Job Curse God?

NO ...
 

Job 1:21-22
And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this … Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
 

So satan goes back to Heaven and stands in line with the other angels and when it was his turn, God asked him again what he thought about Job. Satan said yeah, well if you let me mess with he himself, he will curse you. God told satan that he could do this, but could not kill Job.

Satan placed boils on Job from his feet to the top of his head. Even his wife told him to curse God ...
 

Job 2:9-10
Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
 

Now during these horrible trials … Job’s friends came to visit and saw all that had happened and the horrific boils all over Job and gave all this advice to Job and attempted to condemn Job and make suggestions as to what Job may have done wrong to receive these terrible trials and tribulation when they had NO CLUE what was REALLY going on.

Job said …
 

Job 16:20
My friends scorn me: but mine eye poureth out tears unto God.
 

 

Job 19:19
All my inward friends abhorred me: and they whom I loved are turned against me.
 

Can you feel the PAIN and HURT in his words?

But when the trials and tribulation was over …

God came to make balance ...
 

Job 32:3
Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
 

In fact … God made Job’s friends make a sacrifice and ask Job to pray for them or God would deal with them for what they had done to Job …

Then God rewarded Job and gave him twice as much as what was taken.
 

Job 42:10
And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
 

Let's talk a lil bit about the story in Job just shared …

We know that satan seeks to capture us at every turn …
 

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour ...
 

Job said we come into this world with nothing and we will leave that way. That everything we get is from God so it is God’s to give … And take. Paul echoes this …
 

1 Timothy 6:7
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
 

This is something we should all consider in our own lives. When we lose things in our own lives from material items to homes to husbands and wives … Yes, even our husbands and wives are not OURS forever. Just as it is spoken in the marriage vows. Till DEATH do us part. Death is not the end, but rather the beginning ...
 

Matthew 22:30
For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in Heaven.
 

Kinda tough to understand this tho when we are experiencing it, but if we place the TRUTH within our minds that we are just sojourners here and that we do not really OWN anything or anyone.

We will be able to deal with it better.
 

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES STUDY ON LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES STUDY TRUTH WITH LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES STUDY MESSAGE

The TRUTH is that many of us do in fact endure some pretty tough trials and tribulation and we are being tested all the time. The Lord leads many of these lost and troubled souls to the Oasis Ministry and like Job … We should NEVER lack compassion and understanding of what another soul may be going thru to the point that we would condemn or ignore them because of their resulting state of depression from their trials and tribulations as Job was experiencing.

This is an interesting statement:
 

Job 6:14
To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend.

Those souls which are in the middle of trials and tribulation and are so heavy burdened should receive pity … But we also know that allowing others to wallow in pity for too long can become a habit and thereby negatively affect our friend.

So where do we draw the line?

Is there a point where we feel we have done enough?

Well lemme ask you a question ... How much did God endure from YOU and it appears that He never said ENOUGH and is still kicking out that Grace and Love.

Let THAT be your answer.

I have some Scriptures about friendship that I would like to share ...
 

Proverbs 18:24
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly ...
 

Are YOU a worthy friend? Are you friendly?

Let's define the FRUITS of being friendly, shall we?
 

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 

So if you are not feeling these "fruits" when you encounter others, it is NOT God making you feel the way you do.
 

Proverbs 18:24
There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
 

David and Jonathan shared this type of Friendship ...
 

1 Samuel 18:3
Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.
 

They say that blood is thicker than water when referring to someone choosing family over others. But, Jonathan even turned on his own Dad for this friendship he shared with David … Meaning that this type of friendship is “THICKER THAN BLOOD” and “closer than a brother”
 

Proverbs 17:17
A friend loveth at all times ...
 

So a TRUE friend is there for you in good times and bad happy and sad.
 

Proverbs 6:3
Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
 

If you ever feel that you have done a friend wrong …

Do NOT allow pride to overcome you. Instead humble yourself and restore the friendship immediately ...
 

Proverbs 27:6
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
 

This means it is better to have a friend share TRUTH which may hurt or set you free depending on your mindset than have someone just tell you what you wanna hear with no care for your well being.
 

Proverbs 27:9
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.

"Hearty Counsel" ... For one to have fellowship with a true friend is some good stuff for the soul.

LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES TRUTH WITH LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES HOPE

They say that Love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant …

What in the world does that mean?

It means that Love is oft times selfish and you can blind yourself when you are in love cuz you do not wanna lose it. But FRIENDSHIP within Love makes the two souls become one. So, much so you can oft times sense what the other is thinking or feeling. Many marriages are based on this friendship and they are the ones that last thru the trials and tribulations a relationship endures.

Did you know that Jesus calls those who follow Him … His friends?
 

John 15:14-15
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
 

If Jesus found friendship to be so important that He would call the relationship between us and Him … FRIENDS. Then true friendship is the most important relationship we can have and guess what … It is eternal.

So let us consider being friendly to those we encounter and work at establishing stronger friendships with a foundation based on UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.

And one more lil thing ...

When someone comes across your path and you see they are angry, depressed or have any other negative emotion and you try and talk with them but they just shun you. Do not become angry yourself.

Grow thicker skin. They are not angry at you, they are HURTING.

Do not ignore or condemn them.

Love One Another.

Remember that we have no clue at times what is going on in another person's life that we encounter.

Lemme share a quick story:
 

There was this man who was late for work. He was behind this car that was going very slow and suddenly stopped. He laid on the horn and cursed the driver ahead of him, but the car ahead of him just sat still. He jumped outta the car in his road rage state and banged on the window of the car. But the driver would not roll down the window. He grabbed the door handle and threw open the door and said "what is your problem" ... The woman driving the vehicle looked over at him with tears in her eyes and an infant in her arms and said ... I was rushing my baby to the hospital cuz she had fever and she just died.  

Be more understanding and realize we have NO idea what others are enduring ... Or WHY.

Remember Job?

Remember what happened to his friends?
 

Job 32:3
Also against his three friends was His wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.
 


 You may find yourself asking that soul to pray for YOU one day.


Live and let Love
Love and let Live.

THE LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP BIBLE VERSES MESSAGE IS CLEAR ... LOVE ALL
