Christians think of Jesus as their Lord, Savior, King and Master. However, believers rarely think of Jesus as being a close friend. Though that might sound strange to you at first, Jesus actually wants us to think this way.
Jesus is our King, but He never wants us to feel that we are beneath Him. He wants us to talk to Him, come to Him during our times of trouble, and build a loving, long-lasting friendship. Jesus has the non-negotiable attributes that a best friend should possess – such as honesty, listening skills, and ability to accept you for who you are. When you boil it down you realize that Jesus is the example of what a perfect friend should be.
Once you see all the things that a friendship with Jesus offers, you will realize that He is the best friend that you could ever have. A truly happy life is made possible when we choose to have a friendship with Him!
