    Default PROOF OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP

    On the last night of his human life, Jesus said: “You are my friends if you do what I am commanding you.” (John 15:14) He also said: “If you love me, you will observe my commandments.” (John 14:15) Clearly, there is no better way to honor Jesus Christ than to learn and follow his teachings.

    Did Jesus not return as a human being?

    God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in him. -John Piper

    God needs no proof because He looks at the heart. Actions are just mirrors of the heart.

    Forty days? I am old and forgetful. But I think the point he was trying to make was that we ought to try to do as Jesus said.

    Yes. Reminds me of Him carrying His cross and He calls on to follow Him and carry our cross.

    Okay but what does that mean, because it is not a parable, so it not a metaphor, it's literal, what do you think He's saying?

    Great. However, I wonder how many of those who will applaud your comment follow His teachings? Just saying. In my opinion, a lot of folks only follow the teachings of Christ that are in agreement with the ideology of their particular Denomination/Group.

    Hebrews 13:5 .) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
    6 .) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
