I had the opportunity today to go running with some good friends of mine. It reminded me of the blessing of having so many strong Christians as my friends.
I encourage you to find some strong Christian friends and find stuff to do together. One of the best friendships in the Bible was Jonathan and David. They drew each other closer to God through their friendship.
That is what having good friends will do. Be careful in choosing friends. The Bible has much to say about choosing bad company. I don’t have time to put them in here but I encourage you to look them up.
A good, healthy, Christian friendship is centered around Christ. “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” -Proverbs 27:17
And a Christ- centered friendship brings you both closer to Him.
