There’s nothing like a friend to give love and show love at all times. A true friend will look deep into your heart and not just your outer appearance; they will see your inner abilities and gifts, your weaknesses and your strengths.
A true friend is one who’s spiritually connected with your soul; they know when something is wrong even when you are rejoicing. A true friend will encourage you, not discourage you. A true friend will exhort you when you stumble, but not let you fall; while at the same time correct you when you are wrong. A true friend is someone that you can confide in, someone you can call on, someone who listens and allows you to emote. A true friend prays with you and for you, you can call them up no matter what time it is. A true friend is one who is truthful even if it hurts because they know that you are being set free.
Acquiring the ability to be a true friend, requires a life of Christ-likeness, as we pattern our lives after His, it allows us to walk in genuine agape love.
Sometimes people come into your lives for a season, but Christ is everlasting.
He is a true friend, one who never sleeps nor slumbers. One who will carry all of your cares and burdens.
He is our comforter in the midst of all the challenges. Our peace in the midst of a storm. He is with us wherever we go, walking us through the cloud into the light!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
