Daily Hope Devotional 8 August 2022 Written By Rick Warren – To Be God’s Friend, Value What He Values

TOPIC: To Be God’s Friend, Value What He Values

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: “Some of these people have missed the most important thing in life—they don’t know God.” -1 Timothy 6:21 (TLB)

MESSAGE

The key to a friendship with God is deciding whose friendship you want most.

You don’t have time for everybody to be your best friend. You’ve got to decide who you want most to be your best friend.

The Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:21“Some of these people have missed the most important thing in life—they don’t know God” (TLB).

They know all the baseball scores, the stock market quotes. They know the top 10 songs. And they know who’s in and who’s out in every soap opera. But they don’t know God. They’ve missed the most important thing in life!

INVEST IN IRAs, SECURE YOUR FUTURE

If you’re not a friend of God, it means you care about something else more. James 4:4 says, “You should know that loving the world is the same as hating God. Anyone who wants to be a friend of the world becomes God’s enemy” (NCV).

When James writes “loving the world,” he means loving the value system of the world. God wants you to love people, but that doesn’t mean you have to love the world’s value system.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the distractions of life. And when you love the world’s value system, there’s not much room to love people. Instead, you love materialism. You love pleasure, popularity. And you love prestige. You love passion, possessions, and position.

But God loves people. And he wants you to love them too. One way to show your love of others is by taking an interest in their interests. In other words, what is important to you becomes important to me (always within the context of biblical truth).

That’s how you show your love of God too. If you’re going to be a friend of God, then you’ve got to care about what he cares about and stop caring about the things he doesn’t care about. God doesn’t care about your image. He’s not interested in your status. He’s interested in your character—not how you look but who you are

Are you ready to take a practical step toward friendship with God? Choose to value what he values.

Talk It Over

  • What gets in the way of you being a friend of God? What adjustments could you make in your thoughts or behavior to remove those barriers?
  • What’s more important to you than knowing God? Why do you value it more?
  • Describe the relationship you have with your best friend. How does it compare to the relationship you have with God?
  • What are some things that you know God values? How important are those things to you?

Have you trusted Jesus with your life?

The Bible says you can only get to heaven by trusting in God through his Son, Jesus Christ. You cannot earn your way into heaven: “It is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast ” (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV).

If you’re ready to confess your sins and to trust Jesus with your life, start with this prayer:

“Dear God, you have promised that if I believe in Jesus, everything I’ve ever done wrong will be forgiven, I will learn the purpose of my life, and you will accept me into your eternal home in heaven one day.

“I confess my sin, and I submit to Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Jesus, I want to follow you and serve you. I humbly commit my life to you and ask you to save me and accept me into your family. In your name I pray. Amen.”

If you just prayed to accept Jesus, please email me at Rick@PastorRick.com and let me know about it. I’d like to send you some free materials to help you start your journey with Jesus.
