    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

    THE FAITHFUL FRIEND …

    JOHN 15:13-15: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his (her) friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.”

    YES, as Children of Almighty God thru Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, we are to be Servants and to honor God from a deeply reverent and obedient heart. As we witness the power and the majesty of God, the Creator of all that was and is and is to come, we should be filled with reverence and awe that our Heavenly Father longs for an intimate relationship with us; HE longs for a family. The proof of God’s Love is made TRUTH in the Blood of Sacrifice in the life of His Only Begotten Son – Christ Jesus. The TRUTH of God’s Love, Mercy, Compassion, and Forgiveness is to be truly known when we accept the Gift Of Salvation and Eternal Life by opening our heart and life to Christ Jesus right here and right now. HE also promises us a more abundant life as we walk thru time on this earth with HIM. No longer will you have to walk alone, JESUS is the FRIEND who will never leave you nor forsake you; HE already laid down HIS LIFE for you at CALVARY. All the powers of Satan could never hold the SON OF GOD down … HE AROSE and HE LIVES and HE IS RETURNING one day to call HIS OWN to be WITH HIM in HIS KINGDOM one day. Will you be ready to go with Him?

    If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior; listen to the deep call within your heart, and share this prayer with me right now … “Heavenly Father, I believe in You and in Jesus Christ as Thy Risen Son and in the Power of Thy Holy Spirit. I may not be an ‘expert’ in this, or know the ‘proper’ words that others may say to accept You, Christ Jesus, but from my heart I do know that I want to KNOW YOU AS MY PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOR. I ask You to forgive me of my sins and to cleanse my heart of all unrighteousness under the Power of Thy Blood. As I commit all the remaining days of my life into Your Hands, O Lord, make me a new person in You. Help me to grow in wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and strength as I live each day for You. Help me to share Jesus Christ and His Love with others as I make my journey homeward to be with Him one day soon. I pray this in Jesus’ Name, and I know that I know that I know that I am now a Reborn Child in the Family Of God and I will never be alone again. Thank You, O God, for Your Saving Grace. AMEN”

    NOTE: Jesus doesn’t want to become part of some ‘religion’ with you. Jesus wants you to become a part of ‘His Family’; so just open your heart and your mouth and ‘Talk To Him’ with your own words. As you come to truly KNOW JESUS, you will come to know why in my life … JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR, DELEVERER, HEALER, RESTORER, AND BESTEST FRIEND!

    ** What A Friend We Have In Jesus **
    (ALAN JACKSON / PRESCIOUS MEMORIES)
    What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and grief’s to bear.
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer.
    Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
    Oh, what needless pain we bear;
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer.
    Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful,
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness.
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
