The BEST Best Friend

Jesus is the best friend any of us can ever have

No one can love like Jesus

No one can forgive like He does

No one else can save us

No one else has the power to change us from the inside out

He knows all about us, but loves us still

He knows all about the challenges we face—He faced them too—and cares

Other friends aren’t perfect, He is perfect in His person and in all His ways

He is wise beyond measure

The greatness of His love was made evident in His willing sacrifice for sin

The strength of the surpassing greatness of His power was revealed in His resurrection from the dead

Other friends may fail us, He never will

Other friends may desert us, but He will never leave us or forsake us

Though He may not give us all we want, He knows what’s best for us and Will always give us what we need

In Him we can find true peace

In Him we can possess a true and lasting joy

In Him we have a certain hope, even when all other hopes prove futile

He is a friend to all who will but trust in Him—-no matter age or gender or color or standing in this world

The richest amongst us is nevertheless poor if He doesn’t have Jesus for a friend

The poorest amongst us is nevertheless rich beyond measure if He has Him

When we breathe our final breath it’s a friendship with Him that will bring us safely home to heaven

And we’ll marvel at Him when we see Him face to face

Having served as pastor at Lewis and Clark Bible Church, in Astoria, Oregon, for almost three decades, my wife’s cancer diagnosis led to my retirement and subsequent move to Heppner to be near our two grandchildren. I divide my time between caring for Laura and working as a part time hospice chaplain and spending time with family and spoiling my chocolate lab.
