You need a friend who loves you unconditionally. You need a friend who will be there for you in time of need. You need a friend who is dependable in the good times and bad. You need a friend who understands you and accepts you.
The faithful friend you need is Jesus. He loves you unconditionally. Jesus is a friend who will be there for you in time of need. He is with you always. Jesus says to you, "And be sure of this, I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:20, NLT). He is dependable in the good times and bad. Jesus is a friend who understands you and accepts you.
Jesus, through his resurrection from the dead, is everywhere through his Spirit. He's with you always. He is your unseen guest who waits to be your best friend. He will listen to you when you talk to him. He will speak to your heart. He will change your life.
You may think, why would Jesus want to be my friend? Perhaps, you even think that your life is too bad for him to be your friend. The truth is, all of us make a mess of life at one time or another. He will forgive you and help you. He will love you and embrace you. He wants to be the friend you need.
Jesus says to you, "I no longer call you servants, because a master doesn't confide in his servants. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me" (John 15:15, NLT).
