The Sign of a TRUE Friend

178
A TRUE friend tells the TRUTH in love. When I asked a friend if she would do something for me and Walk by Faith Ministry, she did not do what I wanted. She did not give me what I asked her for. She did not go along with my request to please me. She went along with God to please Him.

My friend wearing her Walk by Faith Ministry t-shirt
BOLDLY for all the world to see Jesus
is the way, the TRUTH, and the life (John 14:6)

My friend did not speak flattering words to me to pacify me. She spoke TRUE words to teach me. This is the same friend that went grocery shopping with her brand new, bright purple, totally bold, I FOLLOW JESUS t-shirt from Walk by Faith Ministry.

When she received stare after stare, she didn’t run home to change her shirt to please the world. She wore her shirt and told the world the TRUTH. She follows Jesus. He comes first. This, my friend, is the sign of a TRUE friend. When she refused to comply with my request, and she chose to obey God and do what He had told her, she reminded me of this.

Jesus is my best friend, and it is His Truth that comes above all else. He is the way, the TRUTH, and the life (John 14:6). The sign of a true friend? Be faithful to the Lord above all else, and above anyone else. For He is Lord of all, and there is no better friend than Jesus the Christ.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6 NASB

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16 NASB

“And I say to you, everyone who confesses Me before men, the Son of Man will confess him also before the angels of God; but he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.”  (Luke 12:8-9 NASB)

“For you yourselves know, brothers,[a] that our coming to you was not in vain. But though we had already suffered and been shamefully treated at Philippi, as you know, we had boldness in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in the midst of much conflict. For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. For we never came with words of flattery,[b] as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness.” 1 Thessalonians 2:1-5 ESV

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4 KJV

“As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,…” Ephesians 4:15-16 NASB
