Having one’s closest friends nearby is important. It is not surprising to find the four gospel writers in the closest circles to Christ. Matthew, depicted as an angel, holding his gospel fills the bottom circle. Seeing his proximity to the Risen Christ makes me wonder, how am I expressing my friendship with God?
May I share with others my experiences of You.
As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth; and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him. Matthew 9:9 (NRSV)
Invitation to Pray:
Do you consider yourself a friend of God? As you think about your answer and feels its meaning in your heart, what prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
