Five Minute Friday: What a Friend!

I have a friend who has stuck by me from the very beginning of my life. In fact, he was there even before I was born. (Psalm 139:13-16)

This friend is always for me, always on my side. He does constant battle with my biggest Enemy on my behalf. (James 4:7, 8, 10)

He prays for me fervently, each time I ask, and even when I don't. And he has direct access to God! (Hebrews 4:14-16)

He loves me in spite of my sins and failures. When I have a bad day, he's there gently encouraging me. When I have a good day, he's there cheering me on. (Romans 8:37)

I have a friend who has promised to never leave me, no matter what happens. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

This friend carries me when I can't seem to take another step. (1 Peter 5:7)

He sings over me and delights in me! (Zephaniah 3:17, Psalm 18:19)

Do you know my friend? His name is Jesus, and He is the ultimate friend! He willingly gave his life so that I could be redeemed of my sins and enjoy eternal life in heaven with him.

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

What a friend we have in Jesus!
