Real friendships are few and far between especially in our society today where children grow up and leave town and job relocations are becoming the norm. Everyone needs a friend to encourage and support them during their tough times, and if you are fortunate enough to have a good friend then you truly are blessed. Many people depend on Facebook to keep in touch, but when you really think about it, how many of your Facebook friends can you count on to be there if you were to call them at 2:00 in the morning with an emergency and you need help? I dare to say, not many would answer your call. True friends are rare and it is not good for anyone to be alone. Have you ever been lonely in a crowd? It’s possible, and one major cause of depression is being alone or feeling lonely. A friend understands you and will believe in you even when you don’t believe in yourself. A friend will be there during the good times and the bad and wants nothing but the best for you and will do anything to help you reach your goals in life.
Can you imagine having a friend that will love you at all times and will be with you now and forever more? Jesus Christ wants to be your best friend today and He will stick closer to you than a brother. People will come and go but your heavenly Father has promised to never leave nor forsake you. The Bible says that no greater love has any man than the one who will lay down his life for you. God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten Son and all you have to do is ask Jesus to become your friend. A friendship with Jesus will heal you; it will sustain you and it will provide the emotional and spiritual strength you will need on your journey through life.
What a friend we have in Jesus and you need to experience His love for yourself. Don’t go another day by yourself. Jesus is waiting and He will change your life forever.
