A Love like none other!

Verse of the Day

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. [NKJV] John 15:13

….

Through the words of Jesus in today’s Bible passage, He shows us how far our love for one another should be; even to the point of laying down of our lives for our friends; which is the highest instance of love shown to us all by Jesus. But what does friendship really mean to many today? Many of us today choose our friends based on what they have to offer, very rarely discovering the blessings of a genuinely true friendship. Thank God for Jesus, who is the finest example of what a true friend should be. His love for us is sacrificial, never selfish. And when He walked among men, He demonstrated it not only through his miracles but more fully through the humble service of washing His disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17), and then ultimately, when he laid down his life on the cross. Don’t you know that valuing your friend’s needs above your own, you’ll be on your way to loving like Jesus; and in the process gain a true friend for life? I don’t know about you, but having true friends is worth so much more than gaining false ones. Prayer: Lord Jesus, teach us how to love like You! We know it’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it in the end. In Jesus name. Amen.

A Faithful Friend

Verse of the Day

A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity. [NKJV] Proverbs 17:17

…..

A true, hearty, faithful friend, loves in times of adversity as well as in times of prosperity: there are many that are friends to persons, while they are in affluent circumstances; but when there is a change in their condition, and they are stripped of all riches and substance; then their friends forsake them, and stand at a distance from them; as was the case of Job (Job 19:14) – [Gill’s Exposition].

It’s a very rare thing to find a friend that is a constant in every situation you may find yourself in, such as has been described in today’s bible verse. But you don’t need to let that unsettle you. The same scripture tells us that indeed there is such a friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24b). His name is Jesus! Many may have let you down, but He only can be relied upon. Indeed I have found Him to be a faithful friend! Why don’t you try Jesus today, and you will never be disappointed! #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #FaithfulFriend #Jesus #Friendship #Truth #God
