Friend of the King

August 29, 2019

 

In reading today about the rule of Solomon I ran across the listing of his leaders in the kingdom. Below shows that the role of friend of the king is mentioned. The fact that this is mentioned here among the various lead roles and titles is interesting.Then God reminded me that Jesus calls us friends in John 15:15.

Often we take the term friendship as a warm fuzzy but in truth there is so much more to it. God considers it a position of importance, influence, love, trust and honor. Further He made a way to be friends with us. Will we treat it as a casual relationship or will we embrace the important role He has given us and impact the world?

“Azariah the son of Nathan, over the officers; Zabud the son of Nathan, a priest and the king’s friend;”
‭‭I Kings‬ ‭4:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:15‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
