This week Pastor Deric continues his series In God We Trust from John 14-16 with a sermon entitled ”Friendship with Jesus”
John 15:12-17
Ice Breaker: How do you define ‘friendship?’ What is the most important characteristic of a friend, to you?
1. How did Jesus love His disciples and how is the church doing with Jesus’ command to “love one another as I have loved you”? Why do you believe that is so? (v.12)
2. What is the condition that Jesus applies to the friendship that He shares with us? (vv.13-14)   
3. What is significant about the change in status that Jesus applies to our friendship with Him? (v.15)
4. What do you find interesting about ‘how’ we came to be friends with Jesus? (v.16)
5. What is the basis of fruitfulness and faithfulness? (vv.16-17)

“The steady discipline of intimate friendship with Jesus results in men becoming like Him.”- Harry Emerson Fosdick
