Prov. 18, 24

1.  Man a social being.  God’s own statement is that he needs the presence & help of a friend.  Genesis 2, 18

2.  One should prize a true good friend, who is sympathetic & helpful.  “The friends thou has and their adoption tried , grapple them by the soul with hooks of steel.”

No one has a friend to lose, though many do it for sake of a whim or careless speech.  Yet they must be bought.

3.  But human friends necessarily disappoint us sometimes.  Perchance one must go alone into his Gethsemane a stone’s throw beyond human sympathy.  They can’t always appreciate our need.

4.  But there is a Divine Friend.

(1)  He understands us fully and sympathizes with us perfectly.

(2)  He is competent to supply all our need.  His grace is sufficient.

(3)  He is faithful.  His motive is pure, hence He is true.  Not a promise but that He will gladly fulfill.  Multiplied thousands testify in life and in death that He is true.

5.  Is He yours?  Have you opened the door and invited Him in?  You need Him to save and keep you.  Let Him in today.
