Your Best Friend

Most of the people around me have heard of God and Jesus and all that, but lots of them don’t hardly seem to care. I don’t get it. They’ve heard the Good News, and complain about a sucky life and don’t connect the dots. Now I’m going to connect them for you. Jesus makes your life GOOD. He doesn’t always make it easy, but you know you have Someone to turn to when you’re down, and He takes care of everything so you have PEACE. You can’t say that about your wishy-washy relationships and upside-down life, now can you?

Imagine the perfect guy. Multiply the “perfect” factor by two. Most importantly, he’s kind, gentle, loving, and humble. Now, imagine he’s your best friend. Awesome, right?

Ok, now think of all the bad stuff you’ve done. (There was that time, at that party, you reeeeally wanted to impress him/her, so you… Then there was that time when you were bored, and you… Oh, and don’t get me started on how you were soooooo mad that time that you…)

Right, now remember Mr. Awesome? He’s never done anything wrong, literally. Yes, that would be humanly impossible, but this is your imagination here. So, Mr. Perfect has to stand trial for all that nasty stuff you did. He didn’t do any of it, but he gets the death sentence anyway. Your best friend!!! Three days later, however, when some of his friends go to his grave, there he is gone. (Newfie all the way, b’y!) They turn around, and he’s standing right behind them, as alive as ever! It might sounds crazy, but wouldn’t you be relieved? Your best friend’s back from the dead!

This stuff really happened. It was Jesus, if you haven’t guessed. He loves you. He wants to be your best friend. You can talk to Him like He’s you friend! Just like, “Hey, what’s up?” and everything, no need for fancy “Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name” kind of language. He doesn’t want you to be under a set of rules, He wants you to be free. Isn’t that what you want, too?

Finally, Jesus doesn’t want you to be punished for all your bad stuff, so He took your punishment when he was killed on the cross. The question is, will you accept his offer?

Thanks for reading!
