Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends. A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Pondering what to write for my daily message today, I was lead to talk about friends and ask these questions, how can I find a true friend, how will I know if the person is a true friend nor not? The above scripture provides the answer to the first question, which states a friend is one that loves all of the time, not just when things are going well with you. It is a faithful saying that a true friend is closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:28), and includes sisters as well. A true friend is someone who will tell you the truth, regardless of how it may hurt. A true friend will walk beside you every step of the way. When the going gets tough, a real friend is there to comfort and encourage you. A true friend keeps his/her promises and will help you to keep your promises.
The epitome of a true friend is found in our scripture text when Jesus states that a true friend that will lay down his life for his friends. Jesus Christ is the one person who sacrificed His life for us. Jesus Christ is the one true friend who keeps all our secrets; He is the one who we can call anytime, anywhere for any reason and be sure to get an answer. We are not called to give our lives be there when needed.
Be a friend; gain a friend.
