What is a Friend

Do you have a friend? What do expect from them? 

My friend, Mike was on the mission field in Indonesia. It was a remote area, and he was much bigger than all the natives there. 

One day they had a problem with the canoe, and Mike held the rope and saved them.  From then on, they called him, Friend Mike.  Whenever they had a problem, they called for Friend Mike. 

Why was he a friend? It was because he was a hero to them.  They still did not know him.           

A friend is more than that. A friend is an acquaintance that you get to know better, and like.  When you have a good friend, you do things for each other because you like to be there for them. It is special. 

So a friend is not a friend because of what they do for you.  They are a friend because of who they are to you. 

Jesus wants to be your best friend. He died on the cross for you, because He cares for you.  The better you get to know Him, the better the friendship can be.  I hope that He is your best friend.


TOBI Says - Do You Have Faith?

Faith is a good thing. Do you have faith? Who or what is your faith trusting? Does that make a difference?

First faith is important to have anytime. Faith is learning to believe in things beyond yourself. You start as you trust a bike, then a car, and other physical things like that. This is very easy to understand. 

Then you have to learn to have faith in people. Some people are easy to trust. Others are harder to be able to trust. 

Remember how brothers and sisters tell the other one that mom wants them? Do they believe them? 

It takes time to learn to trust someone. Faith is something that can grow with time, and experience. 

Players learn to trust their coach. Whether it is catching, throwing, running, or any other kind of training, the right results grow that faith.

It is the same with trust in parents and teachers. Experience helps develop stronger faith.      

But experience with some people also lowers faith in them. People can let you down, and disappoint you.

This will cause you to lose faith in others also.

So, faith in the right thing or person, can give you strength, and encouragement.

Step one is believe in God. After that trust that He can do anything. He is beyond understanding. As you go through each day, you can see Him at work in your life. He does work in the life of each person, even when they do not believe in Him.

He can give you faith, if you are willing to give Him a chance. He will never let you down. That does not  mean that you will always get what you want. It does mean that He will do what is best for you. 

The most important faith is when you know that Jesus loves you, and has the power to forgive your sin.  

Can or will you trust Him to do that for you. Then you will have true faith that will last
