Who hasn’t listened to this song: ♪ ♫ ♩ I choose God, I choose to be God’s friend.♪ ♫ ♩And when do we do this?
I do this when I listen to the Word of God, when we meet a person, you want to know about this person, her/his goals, values, likes, and when we want to be God’s friends, we need to have this on our mind, desire and get to know him better: Now more than anything I going to be God’s friend! Only then he entrusted its fullness in your life!
First Step: Get a bible! Yes, a real bible! No the virtual in your mobile that one does not counts Ok? Ha-ha. Have this bible wherever you go, we do that we our cellphone isn’t? Ha-ha.
If your Bible has a cover in poor condition, find a new cover, nowadays you can find nice covers in libraries, or you can personalize your cover with a friend who is in the same purpose, below I leave you very interesting advices for you.
Second Step: Get an agenda or a notebook to write what you understood.
Third Step: During this purpose we are going to read the Gospels, which are the first four books of the New Testament. The Gospels are a good start for you to understand better about the Lord Jesus. And to start today this purpose (who wants to be God’s friend), The Gospel of John is a good start and is the key! Because John was the beloved friend of Jesus; The Gospel of John and then the Epistles of 1, 2 and 3 John; the apostle give us direction and instructions to be God’s friends, since this Gospel speaks clearly about the Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and what the Lord Jesus wants us to know about Him, and how we have to act to be His friends.
Reading three chapters per day during this purpose of the Gospel of John, one in the morning and mediate, one in the afternoon and the other one in the night. In the third chapter, write about what you understood in your agenda. One day of the week, share what you understood with a person who is in the same purpose with you, go to a separate place, take notes and make a prayer asking the Holy Spirit to be able to clearly express what has been learned; then one starts to read a chapter and what more drew her the attention in this chapter, and what she understood in general; It will be very good and edifying, when you both start talking you will notice how useful the lecture was, and it is going to feed the desire to continue this purpose and to see the fruits, because the Word of God never comes empty, the bible meets in the life of those who believe. I am sure that this is going to call God’s attention and He will bless.
God bless us in this Faith.
