Today in David's Daily Devotional we look at part 14 of The Character of Jesus--friendship...from John 15:12-15.

Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.

David Aldous speaks to us about the greatest friend of all....Jesus Christ. We hear just how much of a friend He is!  Would we lay down our lives for Him?
