IS THIS YOUR BEST FRIEND?

Proverbs 18:24

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

John 15:15 KJV

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

If you really take the time to think about it are best friends are people who we go through struggles and trials with.

Our friends who are not so close to us may not even know some of the most challenging times that we face.

With that in mind, where is Jesus in your life? Jesus in John chapter 15 calls us his friends. What a glorious exclamation! And I would imagine he’s not just calling us his friends but also he’s saying he’s close to us and he wants to be our best friend.

So how are we approaching that relationship? Do we communicate with the Lord? Are we even seeking the Lord? Do we doubt the Lord’s promises?

For a believer, the question really becomes how much time are we spending with Jesus? Do we pray? Do we read his word?

Or look at it this way, are we reading his love letter? And do we love him?

The Bible says that if we love Jesus then we will obey his commandments or a baby he is advice.

There are 2 ways to look at this. If you are not currently in a relationship with Jesus Christ, you can be his best friend in an instant if you just pray and asking for give you a few seasons and you repent And then you commit your life to love him and trust him and follow him.

If you already made this move toward salvation, you have the opportunity to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ.

Begin to set time aside to spend with him. Read his word.

Tell him about your troubles and look in his word for advice on how to take care of your problems.

Look at it this way, if you have a best friend and you’re going to a problem you’re most likely to tell them about it and ask him for advice.

If Jesus is God came to save us in created us in love this more than we can imagine, then surely we can trust him enough to tell him my troubles and seek His Word and His will for solutions.

My prayer is that you will accept him fully today!

You can hold Jesus’ his hand and trust him with everything in your life. He tells us in the Bible that he’s knocking on the door waiting for us to answer.

Don’t doubt that you’re not important to him. Because you are. He is your daddy. He’s your best friend.

He wants to be closer to you than a brother!
