OUR LOVING FRIEND
“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.”
John 15:14 KJV
Pastor Haldor Lillenas wrote a beautiful hymn about Jesus “My Wonderful Friend”. Not only is Jesus our Saviour, He is also our dearest Friend. “When sorrows and pain are my portion, When tears of bereavement must fall, My Savior, my Friend, my Companion, Will comfort and keep through it all.”
I have many friends who I love but only Jesus stays with me every minute. Jesus has promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Not only is Jesus our best Friend, we can depend on Him and trust Him. Can Jesus depend on us and trust us to spread His love to everyone?
Are we a loving friend to Jesus? Does He know we love Him? What are we doing to prove to Him we love Him? Jesus gave His life for us. What have we given to Him? May God help us to prove to Jesus how much we love Him by our service to Him. Are you serving Jesus? If not, why aren’t you serving Him?
