Rom 015: How To Befriend God [Video/Audio]

"Christianity 101" ... Romans 3:21-31, Part 1

After 14 years I can honestly say that one of my greatest friends is my wife.  … Yep, “one of…”  She’s very happy to be “one of” my greatest friends because she knows there’s just one friend ahead of her.  My greatest friend is Jesus.  Choosing Jesus before I choose her protects our marriage, our finances, our children, and protects her from whatever I might become without God’s leadership.  Befriending Jesus was the best thing I’ve ever done.  Friendship with God is attainable, and I want to give you an idea of how it’s achieved.

This video/audio explores Romans 3:21-31 (part 1), highlighting the work that we needed Jesus to do for us, the righteousness that God credits to us, and the one condition that needs to be met in order t0 be called a friend of God.

  1. Rick sez: “After 14 years I can honestly say that one of my greatest friends is my wife. … Yep, “one of…” She’s very happy to be “one of” my greatest friends because she knows there’s just one friend ahead of her. My greatest friend is Jesus.”

    Sorry your wife turned out to be imperfect!! . . . just pulling your chain. 🙂

    BUT . . while perhaps not perfect, that doesn’t really matter. The only important question is: Is she perfect for YOU? Do you believe that even before the beginning of the world, God had already custom designed Michelle as PERFECT for YOU; and to complete who He designed you to be as a united ONE?

    Is Jesus also God’s PERFECT gift to you??

    PERFECT: “exactly fitting the need in a certain situation or for a certain purpose: complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement.”

    When God has given us that which is PERFECT, i.e. that which defies improvement, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father. (James 1:17) Gifts of God are irrevocable. Romans (11:29)” They are eternal!

    When God has given us gifts that are PERFECT, they are co-equal with no need to choose one over the other. In Michelle, God’s love is not only revealed, but she is the very embodiment of God’s love in the flesh!!! They can both be embraced equally without guilt, because they are both co-joined together in an inseparable eternal unity!
