NSCC Today’s Devotional – No Friend Like Jesus

Text: Prov. 18 :24

You need Jesus for a Friend. He is more than a Friend. He told the disciples in John: 15. 15. “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you”.

He also says somewhere that ” Greater love hath no man than this that a man layeth down His life for His friends”. He is the One that gave His life as a ransom for our lives. He’s a Friend indeed.

He fights your battles and does your works for you, He journeys with you everywhere you go, He protects, guides and provides for all of your needs. He is a Friend far better than any earthly friend, better than our siblings, better than our parents, better than our pastors. He understands you, He knows what you are going through, in fact He is in every situation with you and for you.

Your earthly father may forsake you, a woman may forsake her suckling baby, your friend may dessert you, your brothers and sisters may neglect you, your pastor and church members may be tired of your situation and be trying to dodge you. But Jesus is always there for you. He never gets tired of your case, He is still interested in it. He wants to make sure you have good success and victory.

He is the best anyone can have as a Friend. Make Him your Friend. Try to please Him at all times, do His will, stay connected to Him continually. Fasten your eyes on Him always.

If Jesus is for you your life would be free of any external force or demon attack. If God is for us who van be against us?

Jesus help me to be your friend till eternity. Let me not be disconnected from you. Thank you my Lord Jesus.
