I HAVE A FRIEND IN HIM

"There is no greater love than this:
to lay down one's life for one's friends."

(John 15:13)


T
his is one measure of greatness which is truly universal. It is a measure that goes beyond race, color of skin, culture, age, sex, wealth and what have you. Anyone can lay his life down for his friends. All it takes is greater than love one puts into it, a love which is greater than one's own self, a love which is capable of giving till
"it hurts."

This one is for you, Lady Bingkee!

Oh, Lord, you know, I have no friend like You,
If heavens' not my home, then, Lord, what will I do?
The angels beacon me, from heavens' open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

I have a friend, I want you to know.
He's always there, wherever I go.
So come with me now, and sing my old song,
'coz Jesus loves us so!
