BTG Follow-up - Day 5 - The Benefits of Having Jesus as Your Best Friend

As you seek the Lord, there WILL be results!

The more you make Jesus your best friend, the more you will find that He is the best friend you could ever have and will see the difference He makes in your life!

Here are a few of the results:
~ Knowing the Lord personally will transform your life!
~ He fills the longings of your heart!
~ As you come to know Him, you can’t help but love Him!
~ All of the other areas will fall into place as you seek Him first.
~ You desire to keep His commandments.
~ You become more and more like Him.
~ You look at life differently.
~ You are satisfied in Jesus, so now you have a passion to share Him with others and allow Him to touch them through you.
~ You receive a real vision and purpose in life.
~ You have the joy of living with Christ in this life - and in all of eternity to come!

Your opportunity for today is:
~ Continue seeking the Lord as your #1 priority and removing things that hinder your love for Him.
~ Choose another idea from Day 4's list to help you in making Jesus your best friend!
~ Memorize Mark 12:30. (You can do it with actions, if you want!)
~ List some of the results of knowing Jesus that you have found in your own life! (We’d love to hear them, too!)

Remember that the more you seek the Lord, the more you are going to find Him and you will see that He is the best friend you could ever have!

1 Corinthians 2:9, "...Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
