Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.
PSALM 55 : 17
YOU HAVE A FRIEND REQUEST !!
It has been solemnly and earnestly said in a certain place, What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of [earth-born] man that You graciously and helpfully care for and visit and look
after him ? .. Hebrews 2 : 6
You Are A Friend Of God’s .. He Calls You Friend !!
Jesus Christ !! .. He is your Lord, He is your Saviour, however He also desires to be your friend !!
A friend Who is forever mindful of you, a friend Who will graciously and helpfully care for and visit and look after you !!
All you need to do is accept His friend request !!
Think About It .. What could possibly be more amazing than having the privilege of calling The King Of kings your friend !!
Developing your friendship with Jesus is by no means something that should in any way intimidate you, in fact it is very similar to developing a friendship with any particular person.
It Simply Takes Time !!
The truth is that you can be as close to Jesus as you want to be !!
It Is Your Investment .. Which simply means that the amount of time you are willing to invest in your relationship with Jesus, getting to know Him through fellowship, prayer and meditating in the Word of God, will ultimately determine your level of closeness with Jesus.
You will experience the beauty of your friendship with Jesus grow, deepen and continue to
strengthen as you walk with Him over time, on a regular basis .. And .. As you encounter His grace and faithfulness in your life.
Jesus Christ Is Most Certainly Not Your Average Friend .. And .. The difference between developing a relationship with Jesus as your friend and building relationships with people is that in Jesus, you will acquire a friend Who is absolutely perfect !! .. A friend Who will never leave you nor forsake you !! ..
A friend Who is forever dependable, loving, committed and faithful !!
That surely does sound like exactly the kind of friend each one of us not only desires but requires.
All you need to do is grab a hold of His outstretched hand !!
Grant yourself the blessing of making a sincere priority of developing a formidable friendship with
Invite Jesus in to be a vital part of Everything that you do, Every-day !!
Practice including Jesus in your thoughts, in your conversations, as well as in all the finer details of your everyday activities.
Please !! .. Jesus Is Your Steering Wheel .. He Is Not A Spare Wheel !! .. Do not only run to Jesus in those times of desperation .. Talk to Him when you are washing your hair, doing the laundry,
buying your groceries, working in the garden, cooking dinner.
Out of His deep adoration for you, Jesus really wants to be involved in your life !! .. So .. Approach Him boldly as your partner and friend .. And .. You simply, yet stubbornly refuse to do anything without Him !!
If there is one place where Jesus does not belong, it is in a Sunday morning religious compartment !! .. Let Him Out !! .. And allow Him to totally invade your Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and all of Sunday as well !!
Jesus Is Not A Maybe Or An Occasional Friend !! ..
He is a committed, dedicated, 24-hour a day, 7-days a week, 4-weeks a month, 12-months a year friend, Who is mindful of you, a friend Who graciously and helpfully cares for and visits and looks after you !!
WITHOUT JESUS ONE WEEK WOULD BE :
SINDAY .. MOURNDAY .. TEARSDAY .. WASTEDAY .. THIRSTDAY .. FIGHTDAY .. SHATTERDAY . SEVEN DAYS WITHOUT JESUS MAKES ONE WEAK !!
