When we commit our life to God and don’t hold anything back—this opens up our heart to experience His unwavering love. This commitment to God also introduces us to the best friendships with others. We desire that our our closest friends be those who love like God does. A friend who loves like God does—will not forsake you!

God is exactly who He is—all the time.

God’s love is not fickle, it doesn’t manipulate or have a self-seeking angle. He does not play mind-games. He doesn’t keep us guessing. His actions and words are NEVER inconsistent with His love.

Don’t you want friends who are like Him???

Well then, draw close to God and He will enable you to BECOME the kind of friend to others that God is to you! Ah then—you will find that attract the most extraordinary friendships. You see, a person who has given their whole heart over to God, a transformation occurs that allows them to love supernaturally. The presence of God empowers them to love others as they have been loved by Him.

But remember—without God’s presence—it is impossible to enter into love relationships with Him at the center. God’s love does not exist apart from Him. The Bible encourages us to:

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:12-14‬)

Because God is holy, we must also be holy if we are going to be capable of loving each other with God’s love. We cannot manufacture God’s love. We cannot bribe Him by obeying just the commandments we agree with. If you want to have the best friends, begin with developing a close relationship with God yourself. This may require giving up things that you’ve been holding onto that are separating you from God’s presence. Those things are NOT worth it!

Surrender completely to God and get ready to experience friendships like none you’ve ever known!

When we have a friend who loves God, when we’re with them—we know we’ve been with Him.
