Jesus speaking in 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."
The day begins with beauty, the day begins with peace. I can see the evidence as the wind blows through the trees. There is a stillness in the movement and it's easy to make out our Father's design. For through is only Son Jesus, He purchased our freedom. He purchased yours, He purchased mine.
Loving God, we thank you for hearing our prayers, feeding us with your word, and encouraging us in our meeting together. Take us and use us to love and serve you, and all people, in the power of your Spirit and in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
