Friendship Flowering
Friendship flowers by increased awareness
 
"I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." - John 15:15
 
Friendship flowers because we are committed
 
"You are my friends if you do what I command." - John 15:14
"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you." - John 15:16

    Fruit of Friendship – Friendship Planted
     
    Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made
    and the things which in common we share;
    We want to live on not because of ourselves,
    but because of the people who care;
    It's giving and doing for somebody else-
    on that all life's splendor depends,
    And the joy of this world, when you've summed it all up,
    is found in the making of friends.
     
    (an excerpt from The Making of Friends)

    The Prestige
    Every magic trick has three parts, the pledge, the turn, and the prestige where we are told what is about to happen then the challenge of the trick occurs followed by the trick coming full circle and the magic worked before our eyes. A magic trick happens among us. None of us are worthy to come to the communion table. None of us are worthy to be called God's people. But, as God opens up the table to us through the promise and sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, we become his body. That is the great Prestige

    Launching Counter Confusion
    "Left-handed power...is precisely paradoxical power: power that looks like weakness, intervention that seems indistinguishable from nonintervention
    The only thing it does insure is that you will not...have made the mistake of closing any interpersonal doors from your side."

These testimonies illustrate that the places where we dwell are strategic places for mission and that God blesses us in order for us to be a blessing to others.

    Generosity Begins with Love
    Do not accumulate wealth while millions are hungry. Do not take as the aim of your life, fame, profit, wealth, or sensual pleasure. Live simply and share time, energy, opportunity, and material resources with those who are in need.

    Faithfulness Begins With Love
    This is the great love that the Father has revealed to us, that we would love others as He has loved us.
