Jesus said, "I have called you friends!" (John 15:15) and so do we. We believe that God is good and kind, holy, pure, wise, and all-powerful. He knows your name and your needs. He knows your joys and your pains. He knows your strengths and weaknesses, your dreams and desires, your past, present, and future. He knows where you hurt. He knows your hopes. And He cares!
He loves you. And he's here for you. He's as near as your next breath. When you fail, He forgives you. When you fall, He picks you up. If Jesus is your strength, you can do anything!
"Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."
1 Corinithians 13:6-8
We're praying for you that the Lord will reveal Himself to you, that He will open your heart to know Him and love Him, and that He will help you to understand and obey His Word.
"I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people"
With God on your side, you are more than a conqueror. Without Him you can do nothing of real value.
Friendship Church stands ready to help. Welcome!
You and I need to live by faith. The just shall live by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God.
We need to believe in God, that He is the Almighty, Eternal God, and our Heavenly Father. He is here -- with us -- right now and always.
And we need to believe what God says, that He is who He says He is and that He will do what He says He will do.
Faith grows when it is fed. Faith comes by hearing (by gaining revelation knowledge of God's truth). And hearing (gaining revelation knowledge of the truth) comes by the Word. Therefore, we need to dedicate ourselves more and more to reading, studying, listening to, meditating upon and understanding and obeying God’s Word, the Bible.
God sees you and He knows you. He loves you. He protects you and takes care of you. And He guides and instructs you. Jesus is with you, and He is your Shepherd. He feeds His sheep and He leads His sheep.
One of the happiest statements in the Bible is found in Acts 6:5, where it says, “The churches became stronger in their faith, and each day more people put their faith in the Lord.”
What a happy day, when believers become stronger in their faith. And what a fabulous day, when unbelievers hear about Jesus and put their faith in Him!
