Who's Your Best Friend?

We all long for a
A kindred spirit.
Someone who celebrates our successes
and weeps over our failures.

A friend
will ride the seasons of change

even though our paths may lead
to different destinations.

A friend
will open their heart
to our deepest, darkest secrets

A friend
is a friend forever.

There is no greater joy on earth than to have a
There is no greater sorrow than to suffer

To have that longing fulfilled by Heaven is beyond belief.

Proverbs 18:24
A man who has friends must himself be friendly,
But there is a
who sticks closer than a brother.

It would be enough if Jesus was only
our Creator
our Savior,
or our Redeemer.

But He allows us to be His

Just sit and ponder this a moment.

The greatest longing of our heart,
and our greatest need,
were fulfilled in His death on the cross.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus!

Just like in elementary school,
we have to choose our best friend,
and they have to choose us.
Friendship is not one-sided.
 Jesus loves the whole world,
and the relationship is offered to all.
He chose us.

John 15:13
Greater love has no one than this,
than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

But, we have to choose Him.

John 15:14
You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

By faith we become His friend, like Abraham.

James 2:23
 “Abraham believed God,
and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
 And he was called the
friend of God."

By not choosing  Jesus,
you automatically choose the other side.
There's only two spiritual friendship choices.
James 4:4
Whoever therefore wants to be a
friend of the world
makes himself an enemy of God.

So, who's

The choice is eternal.
