Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. – 1 Peter 1:8-9 NIV
We love Jesus even though we don’t see Him in person every day. It is possible to be best friends with someone who we appreciate and enjoy talking to, even if we can’t see them all the time.
Our friendship and faith in Jesus can give us joy and brighten a dark world. We can feel safe that He is with us always.
Although change can mean that we don’t do what we have been accustomed to doing, we can embrace the change knowing that God is bringing into our lives new opportunities. He is the great Creator. He is creating in us a new heart. His love for us shines through our friendships. His love endures forever. Amen.
