“You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” Jesus promises that if we do what He has told us to do, we can be best friends with God and He will be best friends with us. In the parlance of MySpace and Facebook, God is inviting you to be His friend. Think about it. The eternal, omnipotent Creator of the universe wants to be friends with you! In the Old Testament only Abraham (2 Chronicles 20:7; Isaiah 41:8) and Moses (Exodus 33:11) were called “friends” of God. Now Jesus extends this privilege to all obedient believers. And when you are friends with God, then He wants to tell you what He is doing just like you tell your friends what you are doing (Isn’t telling your friends what you are doing the fundamental premise of Facebook and MySpace?). Now a friendship is a two-way street and God wants you to be His friend not just so you can be saved, but also so your life can be fruitful and productive in fulfilling the plans and purposes God has in mind for you: “I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you” (vs. 16).
