Often a praise hymn sung on Sunday gets stuck in my head for the remainder of the week. Lately the replaying praise song in my mind is, “I Am a Friend of God.” The chorus and bridge say, “I am a friend of God…He calls me friend. Lord of glory, you have called me friend.” I’ve never been fond of lyrics that put God on a human level, such as being a friend. However, I was taken aback when I read the account of Judas betraying Jesus, “Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.” Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him. Jesus replied, “Friend, do what you came for” (Matt 26:48-50 NIV).
