Hello Popples (((hugs)))
God bless you this day.
When a person begins following Christ Jesus as their Saviour, they are forever changed, and the sanctification process has begun and will continue until we are with Him in Heaven. Jesus is a Friend to all, however, most are not a friend to Him. If we are walking and representing Him, then we are to be a true friend and neighbor, by loving them the way Jesus does...with His love, by His guidance.
We are in the world, but no longer of the world. We are no longer friends with the world based on worldly standards, but we can be The Lord's representative -- laying down our own agenda and needs and be His hands, His feet, His mouth, His heart.
Luke 10:25-37 is a good read concerning being a good neighbor / friend.
Popples, you are new in your relationship with The Lord, so He may separate you from your old "friends", for a time -- until you feel strong enough in Him, not to be swayed and further tempted by old relationships. The Lord is willing to be our very Best Friend, and once we are well grounded in that blessed relationship -- our relationship with Him -- we will no longer crave the worldly type friendships, based solely on worldly commonalities, where we compare what this one did or did not do for us (what have you done for me lately, type of thing), but instead, our main focus and love concern will be to share and example Christ Jesus with them, praying they come to Him and are forever with Him for Eternity.
That is one of the reasons God gives us one another...fellowship with other Christians, so we can grow together in Him.
I hope you will ask The Holy Spirit to read Luke 10:25-37 with you. Prayers are rising to our Lord in the name of Jesus, on your behalf. May God's blessed will be done.
God bless and keep you, Popples (((hugs)))
