A faithful friend


A faithful friend

“There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24

Suggested Further Reading: 
Proverbs 27:6-10

You have a friend, have you? Yes; and he keeps a pair of horses, and has a good establishment. Ah! but your best way to prove your friend is to know that he will be your friend when you have not so much as a mean cottage; and when homeless and without clothing, you are driven to beg for your bread. 

Thus you would make true proof of a friend. 
Give me a friend who was born in the winter time, whose cradle was rocked in the storm; he will last. 

Our fair weather friends shall flee away from us.
 I had rather have a robin for a friend than a swallow; for a swallow abides with us only in the summer time, but a robin cometh to us in the winter.

 Those are tight friends that will come the nearest to us when we are in the most distress; but those are not friends who speed themselves away when ill times come. 

Believer, have you reason to fear that Christ will leave you now? Has he not been with you in the house of mourning? 
You found your friend where men find pearls, “In caverns deep, where darkness dwells;” you found Jesus in your hour of trouble.

 It was on the bed of sickness that you first learned the value of his name; it was in the hour of mental anguish that you first did lay hold of the hem of his garment; and since then, your nearest and sweetest intercourse has been held with him in hours of darkness.

 Well then, such a friend, proved in the house of sorrow—a friend who gave his heart’s blood for you, and let his soul run out in one great river of blood—such a friend never can and never will forsake you; he sticketh closer than a brother.

For meditation:

 God offered us the hand of friendship when we were his enemies (Romans 5:10)—it cost the Lord Jesus Christ his life to make us his friends (John 15:13-15). 
How much do you display your side of the friendship in a world which has no time for the cause of Christ (James 4:4)?

Sermon no. 120

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,

you can be accepted in to his kingdom. 

 I invite you to let him to make of you what 


He always wanted. 
"PRAYER" 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, 
who died for me to make me free of sin, 
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. 
I confess that He is the son of God. 
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask. 
Amen..

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
 not in its fashion and manner,
 but in the truth which it contains.”
