FREINDS WITH GOD
Are You Friends With God or Friends With The World?
Here is something I would like you to consider: Are you friends with God? When I was living my life to please myself, I can recall that many years ago; I was not friends with God because the lifestyle I was living. I knew it was against what God’s will that made it hard for me to be friends with God because of me. Watch this video about friendship with God.
It was not until I realized that my will was getting me nowhere fast and that when I chose to have God direct my life, it was not until then that I could say that I was finally friends with God! Sometimes it takes a certain situation or devastating event to open our eyes, my situation was an addiction to drugs and alcohol which caused a lot of problems in my life. What is your situation that is causing you problems? Maybe it is time to allow that situation to make friends with God and ask Him to guide you like He did for me.~ Bill Greguska

A Real Friend With God Loves God’s Son, Jesus Christ!
He is a new spiritual person, because of the Holy Spirit. He has a new lifestyle because of his new life. He will have the wish to become closer to God and to read God’s word and to strengthen her faith. His habits and way of life will conform to God’s will. When he does fail in some area of his life which is inevitable, he will confess his sin to God, and God will forgive him. 1 John 1:9
A good way to get a good picture is to learn what a real man is not! A real man is not a real man because of how much money he has, how strong he is, a number of possessions he owns, how important his job title sounds, how good he sounds when he talks, just to name a few things.

There are a lot of men that think that doing good works such as doing things for others will please God.

Have you figured out the answer to these two critical questions? Are you a man or woman who loves God? How is your relationship with God today?
