Text: James 4: 4. Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 

You don’t follow the world and follow God.
Don’t you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?
You don’t use this same mouth and shout yes Lord today and tomorrow, you use the same mouth and lie. James 3:10-12.
You don’t claim to be a friend of God and a friend of the world.
It is impossible to be a friend of God and also the world.

 

Some Biblical ways of growing to be and identifying a friend of God.

 

1. A friend of God is that man, that rich man, who hears the word of the Lord, live the same word he has heard and pattern his life and everything about him to the word. And this same word, grows in Him, multiplies and produces great fruits in him. See Matthew 13:23.

 

2. A friend of God is a man who knows the heartbeat of God.
A man who does what God commands.
When the word of God says Don’t, without arguments or further speeches, you know it’s a NO and stay out of it.
When God says DO, you obey wholeheartedly.
John 15:14-15.

 

3. A friend of God is a man who loves God.
A man that loves God eschews evil. 1 Peter 3:11-13.
You don’t claim to love God when you hardly pray, you don’t speak about him.
Many believers are so ashamed to witness God even to their close friends.
But know this that when you hide Jesus before men, He will deny you before His Father in Heaven.
Matthew 10:33.
Three times, the Lord asked Simon,
To confirm if he truly loves Him. John 21:15-17.

We must love God with all of our heart, body, and soul.
