Friends I Have Made Along The Way

Exodus 33:7-14

This passage stated that God spoke to Moses in the Tabernacle of the Old Testament as a man speaketh to his friend. Now, I am most thankful that I have been blessed to make some friends along the way. There is nothing greater than a true friend. I thank God for my friends.

Intro: I have made many good friends along the way to be thankful for:

1. My Companion- (Wife) Gen. 2:24, Mark 10:9

2. My Comrades- (Preacher brethren) just as the Apostles had that sweet fellowship with each other we preachers today should as well.

3. My Church- Mal. 3:16, Acts 2:42, Phill. 1:3-5, I John 1:7

Friends are:

1. True- Prov. 17:17

2. Profitable- Ecc. 4:9-10

3. Constant- Ruth, Jonathon, Elisha, Thomas (John 11:16), Precilla & Aquila (Rom. 16:3)

4. My Christ- He is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

He’s such a friend that he:

1. Forgave us- John 15:13-15

2. Filled us- with his Spirit

3. Made us family- John 1:11-12, I John 3:1

4. Been Faithful to Us- Matt 28:20, Heb 13:5

I want to be his friend as:

1. Abraham- James 2:23 (II Chronicles 20:17)

2. John “The Beloved”- John 13:23, 19:26-27

3. Lazarus- John 11:5, 35-36

Mark 14:50 “They all forsook him and fled.” He has been a dear friend to me; God help me to be a faithful friend to him.
