Sandpiper's Thoughts: Extraordinary friendship

Original post at http://sandpipersthoughts.blogspot.com/2012/05/extraordinary-friendship.html

I'm working on a sermon for Sunday based on John 15:9-17.  Tonight I'm thinking about the idea of being chosen to be a friend of God. 

There is something special and indescribable about being chosen.  Sought.  Picked.  Couple that with the idea of friendship and the passage is elevated to speaking about something extraordinary.

A friend chooses all the time.  A friend will choose to spend time with you, choose to share stories, choose to listen, choose to encourage and believe.  A friend is vulnerable and trusting. 

God has chosen you and me as friends.  Extraordinary.
