Such a friend!

(Thomas Brooks, "Apples of Gold" 1660)

Proverbs 18:24, "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." Such a friend is the Lord Jesus.

He is so a friend to every one of His peopleā€”as if He were a friend to none besides.

Jesus is . . .
  an omnipotent friend,
  an omniscient friend,
  an omnipresent friend,
  an all-sufficient friend,
  a sovereign friend,
  an immutable friend,
  a watchful friend,
  a loving friend,
  a faithful friend,
  a compassionate friend,
  an intimate friend,
  a friend in all cases and in all places,
  our best friend!

"Whom He loves, He loves to the end!" John 13:1
