A monthly column by farmer, preacher and writer for Jesus, Angus Buchan
When I have been at my absolute lowest ebb, my friend was there for me. When I needed godly counsel that no man could offer me, my dearest old friend was there to direct me; He wiped my eyes and healed my broken heart in times of great pain and personal tragedy.
In times of extreme loneliness, I could turn and find solace, comfort and friendship, for my faithful friend was there!
“Who is this friend you are speaking about?,” you very well might ask.
It is the Holy Bible, of course, and without it I could not live another single day. Indeed, it has become a friend to me that sticks closer than a brother(Proverbs 18:24).
It is in fact, Jesus in print. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. — John 1:1.
So, the next time an atheist says to you show me this Jesus you’re always talking about, give him a Bible!
Let us remember God’s Holy Word with much fondness and tenderness and take some valuable time to read it.
Psalm 119:105 (NKJV) — ‘‘Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path”.
