Summer Concert Series (Hymns) - Week 2 | Pastor Micah Pelkey
Who are your friends?
What is a friend?
Why do you need friends?
Are you a good friend?
Are you friendly?
Proverbs 12:26 — Good people are careful about choosing their friends, but evil people always choose the wrong ones.
James 4:4 — You people are not faithful to God! You should know that loving what the world has is the same as hating God. So anyone who wants to be friends with this evil world becomes God’s enemy.
A friend loves you.
Proverbs 17:17 — A friend loves you all the time, but a brother was born to help in times of trouble.
A friend helps you.
9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.
10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.
A friend doesn’t leave you in the low points of life.
A friend knows how to forgive.
Proverbs 17:9 — Forgive someone, and you will strengthen your friendship. Keep reminding them, and you will destroy it.
A good friend helps you become…
Proverbs 13:20 — Be friends with those who are wise, and you will become wise. Choose fools to be your friends, and you will have trouble.
A good friend has faith in you and for you.
3 Four men tried to bring a crippled friend to Him;
4 but since the crowd prevented their carrying him close enough to get Jesus’ attention, they climbed up onto the roof, opened a hole in it, and lowered the paralyzed man on his mat down to Jesus.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
Can we find a friend so faithful?
A friend that loves me.
A friend that helps me.
A friend that doesn’t leave me in the low points of life.
A friend that knows how to forgive me.
A friend who helps me become…
A friend who believes in me.
What a friend we have in Jesus.
