Are you a Servant or Friend?

A servants’ purpose is to serve without question. A friend is about relationship.
Often we define ourselves as God’s servants, required to do whatever He says, without question.

John 15:14-16 ( tells us Jesus does not call us servants, but He has chosen us to be His friends. He cares for us as a friend and has shared the Father’s heart with us.

God calls you His Friend, somebody He wants to share life with. So we serve Him out of love for this awesome God who sees a weak human like me as His friend. Let us talk with him and care for His desires as a Friend would.


God is GOOD.

Have you ever found yourself in a mess? Even worse, a mess you created?

We all have. Maybe you failed to study for that test, or you spent more money than you were allowed to. We have all found ourselves in holes that we dug for ourselves. In times like these we feel cornered by guilt or shame.

It’s at these moments that we need to remember that the Lord is our ever present help. It sometimes boggles the mind, it feels too good to be true, but it is simply the goodness of God. He is good. And His goodness works everything for our good. He is our ever present help.

Psalm 31:19-20 (


God views you as a peacemaker?

Did you know God views you as a peacemaker?

In fact, in Matthew 5:23-24 ( God goes so far as to tell you to interrupt worship to first make right with someone who holds an offence against you.

‘If you are offering your gift at the alter and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the alter, first go and be reconciled to your brother, then come and offer your gift.’

Jesus also said, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.’

How do you do at keeping the peace?


He understands.

He understands.

Have you ever had a problem that you felt no one else could really understand? Ever had a hurt so deep that it feels impossible to explain to someone else? It can be hard describing our stories to people who we feel just don’t get it.

But we serve a God who understands all things. He knows what it’s like to suffer – just look at what Jesus went through for us! He knows hurt, anger, depression, disappointment, happiness and joy. There is nothing that you can take to Him that He doesn’t understand and feel with you.
