Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

What Are Friends For?

2 Corinthians 7:6-7 (NLT)
     6 “……God, who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus. 7 His presence was a joy……”   

Father, the Apostle Paul reminds us how important our friends are and the far reaching influence that have in our lives. Paul needed encouragement, hope and joy in his difficult ministry to the Corinthian Church and You provided that for him through the loving presence of his dear friend, colleague and son in the faith, Titus.

Father as Titus was a personal gift from You to Paul through his friendship, so are our friends to us. As Job said: "A despairing man should have the devotion of his friends…..” Job 6:14 (NIV) The Apostle Paul certainly had that in Titus.

Thank you Father for the friends you have given us and are true in their devotion as the Bible says: “A friend loves at all times….” Proverbs 17:17 (ESV)

In the name of our greatest Friend, Jesus. Amen.
