Friends

Friday May 15th, John 15: 15 I'm no longer calling you servants because servants don't understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I've named you friends because I've let you in on everything I've heard from the Father. Along with title comes the responsibility to act on behalf of this loving creating God of all. Knowing that God is constantly pushing out our boundaries and boarders and definitions of “the children of God,” we are called to act on behalf of. We are not called to simply act in our self-interest, but in the world’s, and in God’s, best interest. We are called to be missionaries, not mercenaries.  How are we doing, those of us who carry the banner of God, in acting as friends of God in God’s whole creation? How are we doing in our job as emissaries of the Good News?  We have friends of pets, friends of the earth, but are we as the children of God proud card carrying members of friends of God’s whole creation?  Ooooh, maybe there is a children’s sermon in that, card carrying members of friends of God’s Whole Creation.
