“The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.”
Psalms 116:3, 4 KJV
Jack P. Scholfield who was an evangelistic singer wrote one of my favorite hymns “Saved, Saved”. I love these words. “I’ve found a Friend, who is all to me, His love is ever true; I love to tell how He lifted me And what His grace can do for you.” Jesus is not only our Saviour, He is also our Friend, our best Friend.
All of us need love and all of us need friends. Jesus is our best Friend because not only did He die for our sins, He will never leave us, not even for a minute (Hebrews 13:5). If you ever think nobody loves you or cares about you, remember Jesus loves you unconditionally and He will never leave you.
