Let’s read aloud the following together:
John 15:15 (NIV)
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
The Westminster Larger Catechism
Q1: What is the primary and highest purpose of human beings?
Response: The primary and highest purpose of human beings is to glorify God and to enjoy him completely forever.
Q7: What is God?
Response: God is a spirit, who in and of himself is infinite in being, glory, blessedness, and perfection. He is all-sufficient, eternal, unchangeable, beyond our full understanding, present everywhere, almighty, knowing everything, completely wise, completely holy, completely just, completely merciful and gracious, patient, and overflowing with goodness and truth.
Hebrews 6:13-15 (NIV)
When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, “I will surely bless you and give you many descendants.” And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for calling us your friends. Our hearts are stirred with awe by your invitation to draw near and share in the plans and concerns of your heart. Lead us into greater intimacy of prayer and communion with you. May we encounter and know you for who you truly are. In Jesus’ name, amen.
