Have you ever been loved by someone who has no agenda and who always makes your life better? That would be remarkable–right? When we seek God’s friendship and entrust our lives wholly to Him, that’s exactly the remarkable friendship we discover. His is the most pure friendship we will ever experience; and through it, we become the kind of friend to others that He is to us. We become agenda-free. Our top goal is to love as we are loved. We love without expectation because God has completely fulfilled our every desire. We are no longer desperately seeking from others what they are incapable of giving us–because we’ve already found it in Him. Our deepest desire towards them isn’t rooted in what we think they can give us, but our greatest desire is that they possess what Christ gives us. When Christ is in us, He fills us, overflows out of us, and–we have no space left for demands or expectations from others. In Him, we’ve escaped the cloud of neediness and are freed from any selfish agenda. Our desires are purified by the experience of God’s love because we’re existing within the circle of His friendship. So, how do we enter the extraordinary circle of His friendship? Well, He doesn’t play hard to get; nor does He force Himself upon us. He certainly doesn’t play mind games. His desire is to dwell in us so that we may experience the completeness of His love. When we desire and pursue Him above anything or anyone else, His presence within us becomes stronger. We become complete and satisfied. Simple, pure and lovely–that’s the exceptional friendship God offers us. When we give ourselves over to Him day by day, we receive more than we can ever give away. He becomes our most important and consistent source of guidance, comfort, strength, peace and love. His Word says: “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” (1 John 4:16) God is our most loving Friend and when we’re friends with Him, He enriches us and our friendships with others!
