“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends” (John 15:13-15).
Recently I read something interesting about Facebook and the folks that we call our friends. According to triviatoday.com, there are 2.8 billion monthly active users on Facebook. The average Facebook user would have around 338 friends. Of these, the average user would consider 28% as genuine or close friends.
It is rather easy to have many “friends” on Facebook and yet never really know them. They might be called “friend” but never communicate and seldom even read each other’s posts. How very different from what the Lord Jesus described. He demonstrated the greatest act of love that a friend could ever do by laying down His life for us. What a privilege to know the Lord as our Savior, Lord, and yes, even Friend.
For today: Do you know the Lord Jesus as your own Savior? There is no greater decision in a lifetime than the decision to receive His gift of salvation.
