One of the most hurtful things ever is being stabbed in the back by a "friend." The pain of trusting someone only to find out they have used you or are only interested in their own benefit is truly devastating.
Jesus understands. One of his disciples betrayed him by a kiss, receiving money to hand him over to people who would ultimately kill him. Another disciple named Peter denied even knowing Jesus during his darkest trial.
Everyone wants friends, It's how we were designed. Frankly we, especially as girls, cannot survive without friends. Some people are social butterflies and have tons of friends. Others have one awesome BFF, while others are lonely having no friends. If you fall into the last category, I have good news. You are not alone! You have a friend waiting for you and His name is Jesus. He is the best friend you will ever have. He loves you more than you can imagine! He longs to know your favorite color, your favorite book, what bugs you, and what makes you happy. He wants to know everything about you. I don’t know about you, my sister, but I think that is the best friend material right there! So, if you are lonely and longing for a friend, call out to Jesus, the best friend in the whole universe. (Click here and let us introduce you to Jesus!)
First of all, I commend you for wanting to share your faith. Jesus tells us in Matthew 28:18 to go out and share the good news.
And of course we want to tell everyone, “Have you met my friend, Jesus? Through him you can have eternal life.” But if it were as easy as a simple introduction, you wouldn’t be asking for help now would you?
This is one of those things that’s about timing.
