I Don’t Have a Best Friend
What would you do if God friended you? Does the Creator of the universe really want to be your best friend?
While you may not get a private message from the Lord anytime soon, be sure that He wants very much to have a relationship with you. He pursues you, whether you ignore Him or not. In fact, you were created to have a relationship with Him.
Maybe you’ve thought about God before, but haven’t accepted Him into your life because you feel like you couldn’t be yourself with Him around. In reality, God already knows who you are, and a life with Him means being who you were created to be.
God showed His great love for you when He came down to earth to make Himself known in the person, Jesus Christ. The Bible records Jesus’ words to His followers when He said, “Now you are my friends” (John 15:15).
Jesus also told them, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends” (John 15:13). He made that ultimate display of loving friendship when He gave His life upon a cross, shedding innocent blood to cover the guilt of our sins.
God not only wants to be your best friend, but He wants a deeper relationship. Will you accept?
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
