How Jesus Treats His Friends and Why
The Big Idea: Your worst day with Jesus will be infinitely better than your best day without Him.
The reformer, St. Teresa of Avila, once complained to Jesus about the hostility and gossip that surrounded her. Jesus responded, "Teresa, that's how I treat my friends.”
Teresa said, "Then no wonder you have so few friends."
Many odd things happen when we start hanging out with Jesus. Sure, we know him so much better. We realize we are the objects of his affection and sacrifice. We also start to see that we are pawns on his chessboard—instruments of his glory. And we also see that he doesn’t do “all” the work of restoration—he leaves a lot of it up to us. To be his friend is to be his servant.
Join us for a humbling glimpse of his deep love for us, and an inspiring vision for how you fit into his larger plans to restore the world to its former glory.
