The only true friend a person can have is Jesus. We think we have friends that we can count on through out life, but we find out that’s not always the way it is.
We put our trust and confidence in them, thinking they will never let us down.
And we go about our every day life hoping we want let others down.
We think we can count on a friend to always be there for us, but that’s not so.
Sometimes when we need them the most, they are never around. It’s good to know that Jesus is always available. We can talk to him about anything, knowing that he is the one that can do something for us. Knowing he’s a friend all the time, not only when it’s convenient for him. Have you ever been in a situation feeling so down, wishing you had someone to talk to, your heart is broken and you feel so all alone? Then you start talking to Jesus, a peace comes over you and you can feel his presence and feel his love all around you. He tells us he will never leave us nor forsake us.
“This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants: for the servant knoweth not what his Lord doeth: but I have called you friends: for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” John 15: 12-15
Jesus gave his life for every one. We can say that Jesus is a true friend.
