[God] has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
It’s great to have really close friends you can trust with just about anything, isn’t it? I’m blessed enough to have quite a few, and I know these true friends love me unconditionally.
But the most amazing “friend” you and I have is God Himself. In John 15:15, Jesus makes an incredible statement when He says, “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.”
Now, one of the best definitions of the word friend I’ve ever heard is, “a person who comes in when the world goes out.” And that’s a pretty good summary of today’s verse.
God is the truest of all friends…One who is always there and, no matter the circumstance, will NEVER forsake you. He will support you and love you absolutely unconditionally. He is the Friend “who sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).
Jesus Christ is indeed your greatest and dearest Friend. And like any friend, I trust you speak with Him daily and love Him completely.
JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUEST OF ALL FRIENDS!
