This is My Friend CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
In Song of Solomon 5:9-16 we read, This is my friend. Jesus is the greatest friend any of us could ever have:
He’s a Living Friend
Rev 1:18 He is “alive for evermore.”
1 Pet 2:4 We come to him “as unto a living stone.”
He’s a Loving Friend
1 John 4:19 “We love him because he first loved us.”
John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this…”
Many seek friends for what they can get – not for what they can give.
He’s a Loyal Friend
Proverbs 18:24 He “sticketh closer than a brother.”
Hebrews 13:5 He said, “I will never leave thee…”
1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him…”
Psalm 50:15 “Call upon me in the day of trouble…”
Old pal, I’m here if you need me.
He’s a Likable Friend
1 John 1:3-4 We enjoy fellowship with him that our “joy may be full.”
John 15:9-11 “…that your joy may be full.”
That’s how I got saved and that’s how others will come to him, too
A man that hath friends must show himself friendly – spend more time together with Jesus.
