What a Friend We have in Jesus

Preachers Corner http://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

The believer can truly say What a Friend We have in Jesus and stand amazed at his wonderful love for us. There is never a moment we are forsaken by Christ he is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. He is a friend that is true and faithful to his own.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation

John 15:9-17As the Father has loved me, I also have loved you: abide in my love.10 If ye shall keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.11 I have spoken these things to you that my joy may be in you, and your joy be full.12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you.13 No one has greater love than this, that one should lay down his life for his friends.14 Ye are my friends if ye practise whatever I command you.15 I call you no longer bondmen, for the bondman does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things which I have heard of my Father I have made known to you.”Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and have set you that ye should go and [that] ye should bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should abide, that whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name he may give you.17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Exodus 33:10-11 “And all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance of the tent; and all the people rose and worshipped, every man at the entrance of his tent.11 And Jehovah spoke with Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend. And he returned to the camp; but his attendant, Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, departed not from within the tent.”
