Recently, J. D. Greear discussed the nature of friendship, how it is rooted in God’s identity, and how it defines our identity. Here’s an excerpt:
Every other relationship we experience had a genesis. Marriage was created. The parent-child relationship was created. Work relationships were created. But friendship was never created. It’s part of the eternal nature of God. Ponder that till your brain hurts: there has never been a time when there was not friendship.
