John 15:15 says, I don’t call you servants now. A servant does not know what his master is doing. But now I call you friends because I have made known to you everything I heard from my Father.
It is so amazing that the God who made the universe, who hung the stars in the sky and created the mountains and oceans, wants to be friends with me. He doesn't choose his friends based on how attractive they are, or how much money they earn. In John 15:14 Jesus says, You are my friends if you do what I command you.
Romans 5:10-11 says, We were God's enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Now that we are God's friends, how much more will we be saved by Christ's life! But that is not all; we rejoice because of what God has done through our Lord Jesus Christ, who has now made us God's friends.
Before you become a Christian you are God's enemy because you do what you want, not what God wants. When you become a Christian, you do what God wants, because you love him. You are counted as God's friend because Jesus died for you.
