The sacred name called friend

A soft tap on the door.

A thrill to open

and see

a

dusty

worn

Jesus

looking back at you

with a weary smile.

He enters as if he belongs.

He does belong.

Where does he sit?

Is a basin of water

prepared to

wipe

and rest

his tired feet?

I will help.

 

“Come unto me”

he speaks to

to all who will listen.

But does the son of God

need someone

to come to…

simple friends?

Mary

Martha

Lazarus.

Their humble home

in Bethany

Jesus chose

to rest with.

What did you do?

What did you say?

I want to be chosen as Jesus’ friend.

I want my home

to be that place he could

come, rest.

 

A friend is a precious calling.

Jesus is in need

of a friend, and he has

chosen them.

safe

trust

care

support

loyal

You are so blessed

to have been specially

chosen with

that sacred name;

friend of

Jesus.

What did you do

to calm

his troubled

heart this day?

What did you say

for comfort?

 

As Jesus, enters

so warmly welcomed,

perhaps

his heart broke

knowing

close by,

on this very day,

one he chose

to call friend

begins

his plot

for betrayal.

 

I want to be chosen as his loyal friend…
