‘You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.’
- The Lord wants His light to shine through us into a broken and dark world. - The light of God in you makes you different. - Light brings with it the warmth and the hope of all that is longed for. - Be a beacon of light and bring hope and joy to others around you.
Prayer: Lord, may my life be one of purpose and destiny, as I reflect and shine Your light into the world around me. Cause me to be a beacon of hope, a lighthouse of protection, and a source of comfort to others. Amen.

The Closest Friend
December 27, 2019
I KNOW A FRIEND
I know a Friend who has been the ideal friend to me. I think the old songwriter knew the same Friend when he wrote that great song: ‘What a Friend we have in Jesus.’ I think the writer of the Psalms knew this Friend.
Psalm 54:4 But God is my helper. He is a Friend of mine!
If the writer of this Psalm knew this Friend and if the great songwriter knew this Friend and I know this Friend, then you can too. Let me introduce you to my Friend, GOD. He wants to be your Friend as well.
THE CLOSEST FRIEND
The Bible tells us about this Friend.
Proverbs 18:24 ‘There are “friends” who pretend to be friends, but there is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.’
God wants to be our Friend and wants us to be His friends.
John 15:15 ‘I no longer call you servants … Instead, I have called you friends’
I want more of this friendship. More of this friendship for myself, and more of this friendship for you. We all need more of the friendship of the greatest Friend.
