Covenant friendship with God.

“Friendship is between those who trust each other, believe each other, enjoy nothing so much as being with each other, and share together the most intimate thoughts one can have. God tells his people all about himself, all about his works, all about his purpose in saving them , and hs people pour out their thoughts and desires to God. Things we would tell no one else, they tell to God. Their hopes, longings, sorrows and fears—all are whispered in the ear of God. His people know that he hears and understands, that he is merciful and quick to forgive, that his purpose is to make them everlastingly happy, and that he loves them with an eternal and unchangeable love. There is nothing more blessed in this life or in the life to come than to be called the friend of God.”
