Max Lucado – God’s Family of Friends


Listen to Today’s Devotion

Paul gives us this relationship rule for the church: “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love” (Romans 12:10). You didn’t pick me. I didn’t pick you. You may not like me and I may not like you.  But since God picked us both, we are family.

C.S. Lewis said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’” If similar experiences create friendships, shouldn’t the church overflow with friendships? With whom do you have more in common than fellow believers?  Amazed by the same manger, stirred by the same Bible, saved by the same cross, destined for the same home.  The church. More than family, we are friends. More than friends, we are family. God’s family of friends.
