Relationship to God: Friend of God?

Our different relationships to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit

Relationship with God:

In regards to our relationship with God, You know that song I am a friend of God? Well, I would be a friend of God (strictly speaking) if I lived in the Old Testament time, but I am much more than that now—I am a son of God (obviously friends, but a deeper friendship than the Old Testament term, so it is best not used).

Relationship with Jesus:

Jesus is our friend—Our best friend in a sense considering he married the church (us), which makes him our best friend.

Relationship with Holy Spirit:

Holy Spirit: our mentor, teacher

Let me know what you think!

Please note: I just wanted clarify that I am thinking in terms of our different types of relationship to each Member of the Trinity; though, I am focusing more on our relationship with God.
