REASON #26 - In Sunday School, You Will Find Your Truest Friend, Jesus Christ
“The truth is, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, because the work of the Son brings glory to the Father.” (John 15:12 & 13)
An old legend is told of a man who became lost and wandered into a bed of quicksand. Confucius saw the man’s predicament and said, “It is evident that men should stay out of places such as this.” Next, Buddha came by and observed, “Let that man’s plight be a lesson to the rest of the world.” Then Muhammad passed by and said, “Alas, it is the will of God.” Finally, Jesus appeared and said, “Take my hand, brother and I will save you.”
How would you define the word “friend?” The dictionary says that a friend is “a person who favors and likes another; someone who favors and supports.” I’m sure that you have a number of persons in your life who fit this definition of what a friend is all about. But, if you are looking for the very truest possible friend, that person is Jesus Christ! And, the way to develop that close, supportive relationship with Jesus Christ is to read the “love letter” that he has sent to you…His word…the Bible! And, one of the best possible places to find that truest of all friends – Jesus Christ? In Sunday school!
Questions To Think About: How would you describe your own personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Can you truly call him your “friend?” What might you do to improve that relationship? Also, why is it important to have close, supportive relationships with other Christians in Sunday school and church? What might you do to improve those relationships?
Prayer Suggestion: Pray for your friends.
A Call To Action: Through your social media contacts, thank your friends for their help and support. And be sure to tell them about the other great friend that you have in your life...Jesus Christ!
