"What a Friend we have in Jesus!"
Joseph Scrivens, of Port Hope, Upper Canada (Ontario) has inspired generations with this truth. Jesus said, (John 15:13–16) "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." His disciples are his friends. He calls Moses his friend (Ex 33:11), he is a friend to Abraham (Is 41:8).
We pray in the name of our friend, Jesus. and when faced with trouble and danger we can often hear people praying in 'the powerful name of Jesus.' When was the last time you prayed in 'the friendly name of Jesus?'
