“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 15:15 KJV

Eliza Edmunds Hewitt wrote the hymn “The Precious Friend”.  “Jesus is the precious Friend, Brightening life’s changeful story; To His Name be all the glory, He will guide me and defend; Joy, joy, happy songs ascend; He will comfort me in sadness, Fill my heart with peace and gladness, Jesus is my precious Friend.”

Yes, Jesus is our precious Friend.  What a privilege is ours to not only be loved by the Saviour of the world but also to have Him as our Friend.  I have many friends who I love but only Jesus fills my heart to overflowing with joy and happiness.  One day, I will have the privilege of seeing Him face to face.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus.  I pray for everyone who is discouraged, lonely and heartbroken.  Please encourage and comfort them as You have done for me so many times.  I pray for every pastor who is preaching the good news of our risen Saviour.  In Jesus’ Name, I pray.  Amen.
