A True Friend will always tell you the truth.
The Word of God tells us that to be a friend we must show ourselves friendly. When we care for people, or when we establish a relationship on any level, trust Must be one of the common denominators. When I open the door for a friendship, it is always with the hope of not being hurt or disappointed, but that doesn't mean that hurt or trying times won't enter the equation. However as the relationship grows, certain levels are ascertained on both sides. When the level of friendship is reached, we have come to an agreement of friendship. Back in the day some of us remember cutting our fingers and mingling our bloodie pinkies together "Friends forever" We became as sister and brother etc. We looked out for one another, your Mom was my Mom, your family became my family etc... so when you had static, I had static. We reached a level where we could tell one another the truth, even if it hurt your feelings, or went against the grain, we showed each other loyalty. We knew that "our friend loved us enough to tell us the truth". You respected that and loved them all the more for it.
Well my brothers and sisters, I am coming to you in truth today. I might even lose a few of you because of this. However I am constrained by the Gospel to tell you Truth. That WITHOUT HOLINESS NONE SHALL SEE THE LORD! There is no getting around it. We can say we confess that we are Christian or say we Love Jesus, but when our lifestyles don't add up /line up with the Word of God, We who habitually sin deceive OUR Selves. The worse... kind of deception is Self Deception. We can Justify the things we do, good, bad or indifferent, (satan comes to kill steal and destroy) but God has required us to walk in Holiness, we who aren't seeking the face of God on a daily basis, (Praying, Seeking Knocking on the door of Gods Heart) so we can fulfill His desires over our own, have missed the mark, we have missed the narrow way/street called straight. Lastly and Sadly, I see people that I grew up with, went to school, work, and church with Going to Hell if they don't examine themselves, and align or re-align themselves with the Word of God. You know if you are Faking it to Make it. But when the Music stops, and you are standing face to Face with God, what are you going to say? What excuse will you give? Chose YE This Day whom you will serve... There is a blood pack that was made to protect you from a life of eternal Damnation, but you have to Repent, turn to and Trust in the greatest friend you will ever have. He sticks closer than any other, He is the Way the Truth and the Life. Are you a friend of Gods today? There is a way that seems right unto man, and at the end of the road is destruction. Stop acting the part and purpose in your heart to be the part. Make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior today. You can become blood brothers with Him today. Thou your sins be as scarlet, He can make them White as Snow. We all have a past, and in that past, we were condemned to die, but God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son, that Who so ever... That's you and me would believe in Him, they would gain eternal life. Do You Have Eternal Life Today? Lets talk about it, Lets pray about... Inbox me if you like. But be very sure that the road you're on will lead you to the rock that is higher than you and I.
