How to Love a Friend

Day 3 of 4

JESUS IS OUR FRIEND

TALKING TO GOD

Name one good friend and tell God something you love about that person. Then thank God for him or her.

DIVING IN

Tape a large sheet of paper to the wall. Write as many words as you can to describe good friends (great, super, fantastic).

GOING DEEPER

Jesus had 12 disciples who were His friends. You can become a friend of Jesus, too. When you follow and obey Jesus just as His disciples did, Jesus calls you His friend. What kind of friend is Jesus? In John 15:13, Jesus says, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." That's what Jesus did for His disciples and for you.

TALKING TO EACH OTHER

- How do the words on your sheet of paper (from Diving In) also relate to Jesus?

- What does it mean when Jesus calls you His friend?

- How is Jesus different from our other friends?
