The heart of every person deeply longs for true friendship. Think about your best friends and how important those relationships are. Yet human friendships can and do fail. This became very real to me recently when the twenty-one year old son of a close friend tragically took his own life. The reason? The young man's closest friend, a classmate he had known for several years, stated firmly he no longer wished to continue the friendship. The loss was so devastating to my friend's son that life lost its meaning to him, and he completely gave up.

每个人的内心都渴望真正的友谊。思虑一下你的好友及你们友谊的重要性。然而人类的友谊可能失去,也常失去。最近,这事真发生在我身边。亲密朋友21岁的儿子离奇地要了他的命。理由呢?年轻小伙子最亲密的朋友,又是同班同学,相互认识很多年,意志坚定的说不想跟他再继续交往了。友谊的失去挫败了我朋友的儿子,他失去了人生的意义,他完全不想活了。

 

Even though friends on this earth may come and go, in God you have a friend Who will be there forever. Graham says further: "This is a staggering truth. Think of it. The infinite, all-powerful holy God of the universe wants to be your friend! He wants you to know him personally. He wants you to know He is with you. He wants to comfort you when you are upset or anxious. He wants to guide you when you face difficult decisions, and He even wants to correct you when you are about to do something foolish or wrong" (p. 31).

尽管人类友谊有聚有散,但是在神界,你跟他们建立的友谊是永存的。格雷厄姆(Graham)进一步解释“这是让人难以置信的真理。试想一下,宇宙法力无边的,万能的上帝要成为你的朋友!他想要你跟他建立私交。他想让你知道上帝跟你同在。他想在你不安时或忧虑时安抚你。他想在你面对困难抉择时给你指引。他甚至想在你做蠢事或犯错时纠正你”(第31页

 

Take a moment now to let this profound reality sink in. You were created to be God's friend. This reflects the enormous heart of your wonderful Lord! What a privilege to be one of His children, to be able to come to Him any time, day or night, to be completely open with Him, to share your most intimate thoughts and fears.

现在,不管现实,任其发展。你生而是上帝的朋友。成为上帝的子民,随时可跟他亲近,不管白天还是黑夜,向他敞开心扉,亲密地分享你的想法和你的恐惧,多好的特权!上帝的心怀多宽广啊!
