John 15:15 “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
For the first time Jesus addresses His disciples as friends.
Judas was not present and yet he was still chosen by Jesus
John 6:70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!”
The sobering example of Judas shows us that it’s possible to live an arms length away from Christ and yet remain untouched.
