He wants to be your best friend and give you His friendship and bless your life.
There have been times in my life when I needed a friend. I needed someone to love me and accept me for who I was and where I was at that point in my life. I found that friend in Jesus. There is a Gospel song who's lyrics say:
I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus,
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true.
I would tell you how
He changed my life completely;
He did something no other friend could do.
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin
And darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.
“For Moses had said, “If you aren’t going with us, don’t let us move a step from this place. If you don’t go with us, who will ever know that I and my people have found favor with you, and that we are different from any other people upon the face of the earth?” And the Lord had replied to Moses, “Yes, I will do what you have asked, for you have certainly found favor with me, and you are my friend.” (v. 15-17 - Living Bible).
We obey because we love Him and know He has our best interests at heart. The closer we follow Him the stronger our friendship becomes. Non-Christians think we obey because we have to, or because we are overcome with guilt if we don’t, or because we are afraid of some celestial punishment. We know, however, we obey because of love.
