16 For God so loved
the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes
in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
1) Love you for who you are. No matter what you do, they will still love you
2) Accepts you the way you are. Wants the best for you, watches out for you.
3) Understands where you are
4) Committed to you as a friend
It should be realized that the one true friend we have is Jesus. So much can be said for the true friend who sticks with you through thick and thin. God places friends in our lives to help us, journey with us, and that God knows at times we need someone with skin on. John 3:16 speaks of how much God loves us and the true sacrifice of our true friend Jesus Christ.
