Brother of the firstborn Heir. (or sister - but since in Christ there is no male nor female, it doesn't really make sense to differentiate.) That's the holy miracle of it - that the Heir and the firstborn is also able to make us heirs. Intimacy of common inheritance - knowledge of how we got it.


I am a Protestant but I tend to agree with you in that being "best friends" describes an intimate relationship with Christ inaccurately. Modern worship songs tend to do this quite frequently. They reduce a relationship with Christ to an emotional level instead of hitting on the "intimacy and lordship."

Chris Tyler

I feel the same way. It expresses a casualness to the relationship that I find unsettling. And yet, to play devil's advocate, Christ himself said (pardon the KJV) "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." (John 15:14).
