Jesus said, “I don’t call you servants any longer, because servants don’t know what their master 
is doing. Instead, I call you friends, because 
everything I heard from my Father I 
have made known to you.” - John 15:15 (CEB)

While on an extended vacation, I made a point to visit an old Navy buddy I hadn’t seen in years. I was surprised to find that we connected just like we had many years ago. Sharing our experiences was a joy.
Beginning a relationship with Jesus is something like that....

Today's Prayer
Lord Jesus, you came from heaven to be with us. Turn our hearts toward you so that we may know you and be filled with the joy of your presence. Amen.
