Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and as you well know, Jesus is your ultimate Friend, right? But have you ever thought about the kind of friend you are to HimReal friendship is a two-way street, and not everyone who names Christ acts like a real friend to Him. Take what happened in Matthew chapter 20. The Lord knew what was ahead of Him in Jerusalem… a cruel cross. But when, on His journey there, He poured out His heavy heart to His disciples, they ignored what He said. Instead, they argued about who was going to be tops in the kingdom. No, I don't think His disciples acted like good friends. But you and I can gain from their mistakes. We can learn the importance of listening to Jesus in prayer, seeking Him out when we're hurting, and adoring Him when overwhelmed by feelings of love. What a friend we have in Jesus. And you know what? What a friend He can have in you.
