Spiritual Friendship — What is it?

I’ve been spending some time lately sorting through old letters, photos and papers, and it has reminded me of the gift of Christian friendship I’ve enjoyed over the years. Why not give thanks today for all who have befriended you in your journey with Jesus. Here are some quotes to help!

Is any pleasure on earth as great as a circle of Christian friends by a good fire? – C.S Lewis

He is your friend who pushes you nearer to God. – Abraham Kuyper

A true friend is the greatest of all blessings. – Francois de La Rochefoucauld

There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship. – Thomas Aquinas

And finally, when you remember what your friends have meant to you, do this!

If You Know People In Your Church Or Your Neighborhood That Are Facing Adversity, I Encourage You To Offer A Hand Of Friendship To Them. That Is What Jesus Would Do. – Jonathan Falwell

As they tell us in Via de Cristo, Make a friend, be a friend, bring a friend to Christ.
