An Adorable Man reminded me of this simple principal. Our Savior relates to us in one of three ways.
Child, "Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thee as a hen gathereth her chicks."
Servant, "Well done thou good servant, because thou has been faithful in a very little."
Friend, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "
He Gave His life for each of us, to Him we are all His friends, how we relate to our Savior is in our hands. We can cling like a child, serve in hopes of pay, or embrace wholly with open heart our dearest friend.
