ASV | John 15:14 - 15:15
14Ye are my friends, if ye do the things which I command you.
15No longer do I call you servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I heard from my Father, I have made known unto you.

The most important friend in our life is God. Are we a good friend to God? Do we cultivate intimacy with God? Do we spend meaningful quality time with God each day? If not, it may be because we're a better friend to the world than we are to God.
We all want the creator of the universe to see us as a friend. But we have to build our friendship with God. We should share everything in our heart with God, the good, the bad and the ugly. And have faith that he will treat us lovingly. Spending meaningful time with God each day, quietly pouring out our heart to Him, is the most important part of each day.
Then of course, as we get to know His love for us more fully, we want to share that same love in all our earthly friendships.
