February 5: A Priceless Gift of God

February 5 _ brothers-sq“A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”  (Proverbs 17:17)

Friendship is a gift of God, it is precious, it is priceless, and it is to be cherished. A friend is one with whom you are intimately acquainted, one with whom you can associate at any time or under any circumstances, one with whom you trust your confidences. A friend will love you when you’re unlovable, lift you up when you are down, encourage you, laugh with you, cry with you, and even challenge you when they see you overwhelmed by life’s circumstances.

But a brother is even closer. There is a kinship which denotes a blood relationship and a family resemblance. As a member of the Family of God, we have a Friend and a Brother who gives us all we need. He’s our precious companion, our intimate acquaintance, our cherished associate, and our trustworthy confidant. He even loves us when we’re unlovable.  He’s our Brother, we’re joint heirs with Him, and the closer we draw to Him the stronger the family resemblance and the more we look like Him, act like Him, and talk like Him … His image can be seen in every aspect of our lives.

You have a Friend and Brother in Jesus Christ today. He is truly precious, priceless and cherished. Take time to thank Him and acknowledge Him for all that He is to you in every way … every day.

“What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear.” Father, I thank you for the friend I have found in Jesus, my Brother, my Lord, amen.

“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.”  (1 Corinthians 12:12)
