“A man can have no greater love than to lay down his life for his friends…I call you friends.” John 15: 9 – 17
In the Gospel this week, Jesus tells us that He calls us ‘friends’ and that through His death and resurrection we receive the grace to love others as Jesus asks us to. So this week we will be reminded that Jesus came to be our friend and that by being friends with others, we become close to Jesus.
Our mission this week:
This week we are going to think about all the qualities of friendship – my friends, your friends, George’s friend. We can take time to remember some of the words we used to describe true friends? That’s exactly the kind of friendship that Jesus wants to have with you. He wants you to be friends with Him – and friends with others. This week how can we be a true friend?
