This Is My Friend


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.
