What kind of friend bears our sins and griefs and gives us the privilege of taking everything to Him in prayer? Only our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! Don’t allow trials and temptations to discourage you, knowing our faithful friend … Jesus … will share our despair and sorrows with us. He laid down His life for us! There is no greater Love!
John 15:13-15 – “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.”
Philippians 4:6 - “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
Jesus is our refuge when we’re weak and heavy-laden. He will shield us when our friends and family forsake us and things seem to be falling apart. The Lord is our Friend in good times, too. He brings joy unspeakable. Prayer is our greatest Christian privilege and our greatest Christian failure. Won’t you spend some time in prayer with our friend, Jesus today?
