This song moves me every single time. Having experienced some pretty horrific friendships over the past few years, I am so grateful to have found a friend in Jesus who loves me unconditionally and will never, ever walk away from me. The more I pour into our friendship, the more he pours into me. I am not used, exploited and cast aside; I am cherished and loved.
I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
