Friends?

God Friended Me is a new show.

Actually its not really so new. I guess it is in its second season.

The critics say it is wonderful, it is refreshing and a surprising new hit.

The story line is about an outspoken atheist whose life changes dramatically when he is gets a friend request from God. And guess what happens ? He starts changing the lives and destinies of people around him. This change in his life does not come easily, as a matter of fact it takes a while for Miles – the main character- to accept the request. He finally accepts the request and is brought together with an online journalist. Miles by the way is a pod cast host. The two find themselves investigating God’s friend suggestions and finding themselves helping others, with God’s direction. Ultimately changing their own lives forever.

I admit I have not seen all the episodes but what I have watched I have loved. The story content is good, it is relatable. My first question is how could you NOT accept a friend request from God ?

Hold it, tap the brakes, wait a minute….HE has made that request to us time and time again. And we don’t even have to have a smart TV or an iPhone 11. He just wants to be in a relationship with us. Everyday, through the good days, the bad days, the every in between days. He wants us to be a friend of His and everyone around us.

Now I am not a social media person. I don’t Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or anything else that is out there. I do have a Linked in page, but that is where it ends. I am learning that God wants me as His friend with or without technology . He loves us. He wants to be in relationship with us.

As I said up above a “surprising new hit “ - Why would you be surprised when God is in it?

Amen.
