Do You Want Jesus to Be Your Friend?

“From One Christian to Another…”

Do you want Jesus to be your friend? To walk with Him through your life? What does it mean for Jesus to be your friend?

Do You Tell Him Everything?                                      Two young men holding an elephant tusk

Friends tell each other everything, well almost everything. Do you do that with Jesus?

Spend Time with Him?

Friends never get tired of spending time with each other. Do you spend quiet time with the Lord and not get tired of it?

Friends trust each other. Of course, having God as your friend means more. You must trust Him with your life and most of all, your eternity.

Friends are generous with each other. God has certainly been generous with you. Are you generous with Him? After all, He’s given you everything you have.

Do You Love Him?                                        Girls bringing water

Above all, friends love each other. They do things for each other.  God loved you so much He sent His only Son to die for you. He sacrificed the One He loved the most, a very part of Himself. Do you love Him? Are you willing to sacrifice for Him? I think it’s our greatest challenge. It’s my challenge too.  Let’s dedicate our lives to Him with all that we are and have.

Blessings on your journey of faith, anita

Beyond Myself Book Cover by Author Anita Katherine DennisBeyond Myself: The Farm Girl & the African Chief

I describe my journey of faith in my memoir of my love story. During the 1960s, I married my anthropology professor who was a hereditary African Chief of the Mende tribe in West Africa. This led me to visit Africa a number of times and live in his remote village for a year with our 3 boys doing lay missionary work. I certainly didn’t do things perfectly. And yet, the Lord has been so gracious in my life! I can only praise and thank Him!
