Your Best Friend

The Bible tells you that Jesus is your best friend (John 15:15).

Ashley’s Story

“I always put my friends above God. In fact, my life revolved around my friends so much that I began to get involved in reckless behavior just to seem ‘cool’ to others.

“Pretty soon I got involved in drugs, sex and alcohol. My life got out of control, and I felt worthless, with no purpose other than to get ‘high.’ Then I even lost my friends, who called me ‘trash.’

“One day someone told me that Jesus Christ not only created me, but wanted to be my best friend. I couldn’t believe it at first. Later, I decided to ask Him into my life. Since then, God has given me a new purpose in life and helped me break my addictions. I now have many new friends, but the greatest of all is Jesus Christ. He accepts me for who I am, and tells me that ‘He will never leave or forsake me’ (Hebrews 13:5).”

No other friend loves you so much or will stick with you so closely (Proverbs 18:24). Jesus is totally loyal and faithful! (Proverbs 20:6).

Temptation to Abort Your Mission

Once a space shuttle launches, it is too late to abort the mission without the potential of grave danger. Now that you have “launched” your life with Christ, you need to be aware of the danger of aborting your mission.

The lure of life’s pleasures will tug at you. Your own hormones and desires will crave to be fulfilled.

It’s important to remember that those temporary pleasures are not worth aborting your “mission” with Christ.

In Romans 8:32, Paul says: “Since God did not spare even His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, won’t God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?”

In other words, your heavenly Father loves you so much that He delights in giving you your heart’s desire. If you live for Christ and trust Him, you will experience…
