His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. By these He has given us very great and precious promises, so that through them you may share in the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world because of evil desires.
2 Peter 1:3-4
There are great benefits for having a personal relationship with a rich and powerful person.
If your friend is the CEO of a large corporation, the governor of a state, a member of congress or perhaps even the President of the United States, then you certainly prosper in many ways because of that relationship. Even in a bad economy the personal friend of a President will have many job offers.
When you come to know Jesus, the benefits are amazing. First of all, He gives you hope for the future and purpose for your life right now. And of course Jesus makes sense of your past, no matter how despicable it may have been.
There is another way that Jesus reminds me of powerful politicians. Jesus makes very great, precious and, dare I say, very hard to believe promises. But, unlike politicians all of Jesus' promises are true and will be kept.
Let Jesus be your NEW BEST FRIEND!
