This sweetimage is certainly meaningful to us. But it has becomeso commonplace in our culture that we tend to miss theenormity of Jesus’ sacrifice and the amazing implications for us.Salvation and an eternal home are two wonderful privileges that come to us through God’s gift of HisSon. Now let’s look at three more.We have a personal relationship with the omniscient and omnipresent God. He is the Good Shepherd,who cares for us individually, unconditionally, and with great passion. He will do whatever it takes tokeep us close to Him; no matter how we sin, He will never disown us. What security and value we havebecause of His great love!Jesus says that He is our faithful, trustworthy friend, available at all times, whether in seasons of heartache or rejoicing. The Lord offers the type of intimate relationship that we all long to have. Andonly He can fill our void in a truly lasting, satisfying way.The moment we are saved, God gives us another gift: His Holy Spirit indwells each believer, counseling,teaching, and enabling us to do His Will. He will never leave us and, in fact, will one day accompany usto heaven.God is our Shepherd, Friend, and indwelling Teacher. His gift of redemption allows us to live abun-dantly now and also promises eternity in His presence. Take the time to explore some of the countlessbenefits of His gift so you can enjoy and be grateful for all the blessings we have in Jesus.

What is a friend? The wordcomes from the German freund,which in turn originates from anIndo-European root meaning “tolove,” shared by “free.” Thus afriend is defined as a person of mu-tual affection that is free of sexualor family relations.Still there are many more defi-nitions of friendship. Friends care,support, listen, open-up, and thenin the end are loyal. It is almostlike the ethics of medicine: friendstry to benefit and not harm theirpals, do it honestly, all while re-specting the other guy’s freedom tochoose.There are a lot of great quotesabout the value of friendship:Some unknown author said, “A friend is someone who knows thesong in your heart and can sing itback to you when you have forgot-ten the words.”Charles Caleb Colton said, “Truefriendship is like sound health, thevalue of it is seldom known until itbe lost.”Emily Dickenson said, “Myfriends are my estate.” And of course John Lennon said,“I get by with a little help from myfriends.”In this era of the web and suchthings as Facebook and Twitter,apparently it is a sign of influenceby how many one has “friended.”Isn’t it ironic that the technology of the Internet has instead isolatedpeople? Several studies even indi-cate the Internet may be a majorreason why there has been a de-cline in the number and quality of friendships nowadays.Certainly humans are hard-wired to have friends. Anthropolo-gists tell us that a village is limitedto the size of about 150 people be-cause that is the maximum num-ber of friends one can get to knowwhen limited by only human ver-bal skills.The challenge and perhaps dis-advantage of friendship turnsaround the listening and unselfishgiving, the honesty, and the free-dom of choice that is required withtrue friendship.But health advantages of friend-ship are enormous. Solid scientificstudies find those with strongfriendships have better mentaland physical health, increasedlongevity, and a deeper sense of happiness. The opposite is alsotrue: those friendless have in-creased risk for heart disease,more infections, and a higher inci-dence of cancer. Of course these ill-nesses come to people with friendstoo, but survival is longer and eas-ier to those who are connected.It is so true that in this toughand tumble world, “We get by witha little help from our friends.”
