…do I have the greatest friends in the universe?
Listen, let him who boasts boast in the Lord, and I’m fixin’ to — the Lord is so gracious, so generous, so merciful, to give me friends like my friends. I just don’t deserve them. He provided everything I need in Christ! He wasn’t obligated to provide me with a loving family. He reached down into darkness and saved me from the death I deserved for my sin. He didn’t have to bless me beyond measure with people who love me despite my flaws.
Sometimes my heart just wants to explode. I was praying with one of my friends tonight and started to cry thinking about the joy we look forward to — the joy of being in unbroken fellowship with our brothers and sisters, working together in the presence of God when our Savior returns to make all things new. Imagine! Relationships unmarred by sin! Love perfectly reflecting the Father’s love for his bride! Oh Lord, speed that day!
