The gospel of John clearly demonstrates what friendship is all about, says Rev. David Pileggi. There is an invitation to come and investigate. The friendship that Jesus is offering us is modelled on his relationship with the Father. The basis of biblical friendship is the way the Father loves the Son. Jesus is found in the bosom of the Father. In order for there to be friendship there has to be relationship.
Readings: Acts 10:44-48, 1 John 5:1-6, John 15:9-17
