YOUR PERFECT FRIEND

John 15:12-15

You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. John 15:3

Where did you meet your best friend? Often you make friends in your own neighborhood. Sometimes you find them at school, in college, or at work. The friendship isn’t perfect, yet it is an integral part of your life.

But if you could find the perfect friend, what would be your blueprint? You would probably choose someone who loves you just as you are, someone who overlooks every negative act and still loves you without condition. You’d pick someone who accepts you without regarding qualifications or stature.

No doubt, your friend would understand you fully and know why you’re hurt, discouraged, or tempted, and he would understand even when you err. He doesn’t agree with it, but he understands because he’s been there.

Your ideal friend would be someone to whom you could tell your innermost desires and secrets without fear of rejection or criticism. The person would be committed to you, no matter the circumstance, and would be completely open with you.

Your new friend would be selfless, showing you love every day and encouraging you to love others. He would offer inspiration and comfort simply by listening before answering. If you haven’t met such a friend, it’s time for an introduction.

This is Jesus Christ. He is your perfect Friend!

You are the perfect Friend, Jesus. You offer inspiration and comfort. Thank You for being my Friend.
