You are my friends

     Jesus says to us: You are my friends, if you do what I command.  This statement is totally unheard of, yet it does not impress us at all.
     And the next statement:  I don’t call you servants any more, because servants don’t know what their master is doing, but I have called you friends – it should shake us up, and we barely notice it.
     And also another sentence does not astonish us:  You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit -- fruit that will last.
     We are so familiar with these statements.  We are so used to them.  Or maybe they don’t reach us, because we have never understood them.
