Handout With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,     with calves a year old? 7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,     with ten thousands of rivers of oil?

He’s the individual who had such an intimate relationship with God that he “was called a friend of God” (James 2:23). What can we learn from the first follower? After these…
