My Forever Friend

When the world had forgotten me
there was one who knew my name
when others told me I didn't belong
his love for me was ever the same

When deep in my heart I felt so lonely
he was always there to show me love
at times I was very close to the edge
his arms they held me from far above

On days when I could not keep going
he took my arm and walked me along
when I was lacking the will to keep up
he whispered to me that I was strong

When all the world seemed so unkind
he said "My love for you will never end"
I took his hand and walked by his side
knowing in Jesus I had a forever friend

Biblical definition of Jesus:

(1.) Joshua, the son of Nun(Acts 7:45; Heb. 4:8; R.V., "Joshua").
(2.) A Jewish Christian surnamed Justus (Col. 4:11).

Je'sus, the proper, as Christ is the official,name of our Lord.

To distinguish him from others so called, he is spoken of as "Jesus of Nazareth" (John 18:7), and"Jesus the son of Joseph" (John 6:42). This is the Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua, which was originally Hoshea (Num. 13:8, 16),but changed by Moses into Jehoshua (Num. 13:16; 1 Chr. 7:27),or Joshua. After the Exile it assumed the form Jeshua, whence the Greek form Jesus. It was given to our Lord to denote the object of his mission,to save (Matt. 1:21).

The life of Jesus on earth may be divided into two great periods,(1) that of his private life, till he was about thirty years of age; and (2) that of his public life,which lasted about three years.


WHAT IS JESUS TO ME?

Jesus is my savior...He was crucified willingly to
save me...and all that is required of me is to live
my life according to the rules set down to me by
his father...God...To accept that Jesus is the
only way that I can get to the kingdom of his
father.

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

God gave us the ultimate sacrifice...His only
begotten son...so they may live forever...

John 3:16

For God so loved the; world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

We need only to follow his commandments...

Exodus 20:
<>1And God spake all these words, saying, 
2  I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,
    out of the house of bondage. 

3  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any
     thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in
     the water under the earth: 

5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD
     thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the
     children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 

6  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my
    commandments. 

7  Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD
     will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. 

8  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 
10  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt
     not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor
     thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 

11  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that
     in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the
     sabbath day, and hallowed it. 

12  Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the
     land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 

13  Thou shalt not kill. 
14  Thou shalt not commit adultery. 
15  Thou shalt not steal. 
16  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. 
17  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not
     covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor  
     his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

and the information he left for us to use in 
getting to know, respect and love  him...
The ONLY words that he left for us...

THE BIBLE

Revelation 22:18

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of  this book If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 
Revelation 22:19
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 

Not so much to ask for considering what he gave up for us...
