Are You A Friend of God?

friend-of-god_t_nv-300x225"For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God (Romans 5:10-11).”

Are YOU a friend of God? 'Religion' says that it is impossible to be friends with God; yet, a relationship with Jesus gains us just that.

When Jesus was born, an angel announced "I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people (Luke 2:10)."

What is this 'Good News'?

It is that Jesus has reconciled us to God, no longer counting our sins against us (2 Corinthians 5:18-21). This is a gift from God, not gained by anything we could possibly do or say, but by faith in Christ alone.

Come back to God!  He is waiting with arms wide open!
