“He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.” John 1:39Text — John 1:35-39
Friendship is a very important aspect of human relationship. No one can exist alone, we need friends to make our life meaningful. However, the type of friends we keep will determine whether we shall experience positive influence or not. However, the best Friend to have is, Jesus Christ. One of the signs of true friendship is closeness and being together all the time. In out Bible passage, Andrew and one other disciple of John were introduced to Jesus. When they met Jesus, they loved Him and desired to be His friend. They followed Jesus to where He was living. As they talked more with Jesus, they loved Him more and decided to pass the night with Him. They must have enjoyed what Jesus was discussing with them. They wanted to hear more, so they stayed overnight.
The greatest thing that can ever happen to anyone in this life is to stay close to Jesus Christ. Knowing Jesus Christ as a friend and personal Saviour brings peace of mind, joy, hope and the confidence to face the future. Andrew, one of the two that followed Jesus home continued with Jesus till the end. How close is your friendship with Jesus? Are you very close to Him? Do you talk with Him in prayer always and allow Him talk with you as you read His word? Will you follow Him to His home in heaven and live with Him forever where there is no sorrow? Then, you need to be closer to Him now.
Prayer for today
Lord Jesus, draw me closer and closer to You and help me to follow You till the end.
