“The Friend who laid down His Life for you”

Key Verse

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

Text — John 15:9-15


Life is a great gift from God and it is cherished and precious to all. Friendship is also a gift; while some people have good friends others do not have good friends. Friends are supposed to be loving and caring for one another. As human beings, there are times that friends can disappoint one another. However, there is a Friend Who loves genuinely and can never disappoint, His name is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The Bible says that He loves us so much that He laid down His life to save us from our sins. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

No matter how difficult things may be, Jesus will never leave nor forsake His friends. He loves you dearly and wants you to trust Him for your life’s journey. He laid down His life so that you can have a place in heaven. Accept Him as your Friend today and you will never be disappointed; He will not abandon you.
