A British publication once offered a prize for the best definition of a friend. Among the thousands of answers received were the following:
"One who multiplies joys and divides grief."
"One who understands our silence."
"A watch that beats true for all time and never runs down."
The winning definition read: "A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out."
As we celebrate the gift of friendship, I would like to mention a friend that God's Word says is, “closer than a brother”. That friend of course is Jesus Christ. What a wonderful friend we have in Jesus! He truly is a friend that not only will be there when everyone else leaves, but He is one who comforts like no one else. If you are interested in making a friend with Jesus, He is more than willing to be a friend to you. He will show up in many ways. One way is through the Body of Christ, His Church. Apostolic Revival Church offers many avenues of Christ's friendship with some of the most wonderful people you could ever meet. We would love for you to experience Christ's friendship through the members of our church. Jesus is ready and willing to develop a personal relationship with anyone that would like one. ARC would be a great place to develop this kind of friendship you are desiring!
