I am sure you have had many friends you considered your best friends in the past who have unexpectedly betrayed or hurt you in unimaginable ways.
If you are such a person, I am here to tell you that you are not alone, which is why you need to put no trust in humans, as they can disappoint you when you least expect it.
Unlike fallible humans, our Lord Jesus Christ will never fail or disappoint you, even if you let Him down. This is what makes our friendship with Christ Jesus special, as it’s based on selfless, unconditional love that humans can’t offer.
With that said, let’s discuss the 7 main reasons why Jesus is our best friend, the one and only true friend you will ever have in this life, period.
7 Reasons Why Jesus Is Your Only Best Friend.
Take your time to digest the 7 major reasons below why Jesus Christ is the only true and faithful friend you will ever have who’s worth clinging on to.
- He Will Never Fail You.
- He Will Never Forsake You.
- He Loves You Unconditionally.
- He Gave His Life For You.
- He Will Never Betray You.
- Has Your Best Interests.
- He’s Always Faithful.
1. He Will Never Fail You.
The first major reason why Jesus Christ will be the best-undisputed friend you will ever have is unlike fallible, sinful humans, He will never fail you in any way.
How many times have people you considered your best friends, including so-called Christian friends, failed you when you least expected it? I am sure your answer to that question is countless times.
It’s just a matter of fact that human friends, regardless of who they are, besties or not, will fail you at some point when you least expect it. This is because we, as sinful humans, are fallen creatures who do mean things to others at times.
Since Christ is the only friend who will never fail you, it’s why you must trust Him, Only because humans, as Jeremiah 17:5 reminds us in the Old Testament, will fail you, no matter how you trust them, which is a sad state of affairs indeed.
2. He Will Never Forsake You.
Another reason why Jesus will be your only best friend in this life is that, unlike humans, He will never forsake you, no matter what, even if everyone abandons you.
How many times have people you considered your friends abandoned you when you least expected it especially when things were rough in your life? I am sure your answer to that question is many.
Hebrews 13:5 and Deuteronomy 31:6 tell us that, unlike humans, Jesus will never leave you or forsake you at all costs. This is why you need not worry when people you least expected to leave or ghost you suddenly do so.
You have Jesus Christ on your side who’s promised never to abandon you, no matter what, unlike fallible humans who can promise a bazillion times not to leave you but do the opposite when storms come in your life.
3. He Loves You Unconditionally.
Thirdly, Jesus is the only true friend you will ever have in this life because only He’s the one who truly loves you unconditionally, even as a sinner unworthy of His divine love.
The fact that He loves you unconditionally, even when you don’t deserve it, is what makes His friendship with mankind special and unique. No human in this world will ever love you the way Jesus does.
On the contrary, humans will only love you conditionally, especially if you have something to benefit them, as we are selfish and self-centered by nature due to our fallen, sinful nature.
This is why you must never be desperate to be loved by humans, who will never truly love you as Jesus does. Only the love of Christ will satisfy the deepest desire of your soul to be loved. So, run to Him instead.
4. He Gave His Life For You.
Additionally, Jesus Christ is also the only true bestie you will ever have because He gave His life for you even if you didn’t deserve it. It’s why He says in John 15:13 that there is no greater love than laying your life down for another.
By dying for your sins so that you could have salvation and eternal life, He proved that indeed He is a true friend worth having. Tell me of any sinful human who can do what Christ Jesus did. None, of course.
True friendship is all about the willingness to selflessly sacrifice and lay down your life for another person, and our Lord Jesus Christ is a perfect example of that. Sinful humans, sadly, can’t do that.
Since Christ gave His life for you, there is no legitimate reason why you must reject Him in your life by accepting Him as your Lord and personal savior if you haven’t done so yet today, and you won’t regret it.
5. He Will Never Betray You.
Unlike virtually all humans be it your best friends or not, who will at least betray you in one way or the other when you least expect it, Jesus will never betray you or break your heart, ever.
So, if you have been betrayed by someone you considered a dear friend up to until that nasty betrayal that broke your heart, worry not as you have Christ Jesus, the only true and faithful friend who will never betray you.
This is why you must never over trust humans even your so-called best friend as that person you consider a bestie is still human and subject to the fallen human nature. Hence, even your bestie can betray and break your heart in unimaginable ways.
The only faithful friend you must blindly trust with all your heart is Jesus, as He will never betray your trust and He will heal all the past betrayals you have experienced with His unfailing love.
6. Has Your Best Interests.
Another vital virtue Christ has that makes our relationship with Him the best we can ever have is that, unlike humans, He has our best interests at heart and always wants the best for us.
It’s why we are told in Jeremiah 29:11 that the Lord knows the plans he has for us that are good, to give us an expected end, and to be with Him in eternity in glory when all is said and done.
Unlike humans, who can sometimes be jealous of you and try to secretly bring you down, Jesus will never do that or withhold anything from you that will make you prosperous, as He’s our real friend without any ill intentions against us.
How many times have people been jealous of you when you started doing better than them and started trying to secretly ruin your life? I am sure you have countlessly met such jealous people in your life, which is why your faith must only be in Jesus.
7. He’s Always Faithful.
Last but not least, in addition to all the above-mentioned points as to why Jesus is our true best friend, He’s always faithful at all times, unlike humans, who are like chameleons.
Deuteronomy 7:9 tells us the Lord is always faithful to us, even if we are unfaithful to Him. Implying that Jesus will always say and do what He’s promised to do, and you won’t be disappointed with broken promises, as is the case with humans.
It’s just a matter of fact that human beings are not good at being faithful and truthful. I am sure you have been disappointed by many people, including friends, who were unfaithful to you despite your being faithful to them and being there for them.
So, when people, including your friends, let you down by breaking the promises they made to you, just remember you have God and Jesus on your side, who will always be faithful to you for all eternity.
I hope the above post has now clearly made you understand why only Jesus is our best friend, the one who’s worth our trust, and the one who will never let us down, unlike humans.
If you have not accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, do so today, as you will not be disappointed and your life will change for the better when you do that.
