Jesus said, “I no longer call you servants, but friends.”
Exodus 33:11 “God spoke with Moses as a man speaks with a friend.”
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
“There is a Friend Who sticks closer than a brother.”
Have you ever noticed that no other ‘false god’s’ name is cursed or abused?
Even satan’s name is not attacked as a swear/curse word in this world.
Scripture tells us that satan is the ruler of this age. He will only attack the Truth, he will never attack that which is already false!
Notice that allah, buddha, or lucifer are never used as a curse/swear word?
Even those that claim to love the Lord misuse the Lord’s name.
If we would not use our parents’ names, childrens’ names, or spouses’ names as a curse/swear word, why would we do so with God’s name?
Jesus is the Truth. No other false god’s name will be thrown around carelessly in this way. Satan only attacks the Truth, not what is already false!!
Food for thought….
We have all, at one time or another, felt alone (or almost alone) when we stand firmly for the Lord.
Even those closest to you may not understand how close the Lord has drawn you to Himself in a personal, one-to-one relationship.
Take heart! Jesus knows and understands because He created that longing in you for Himself and what He has called you to do!
