Who is the most friendly man to ever walk the earth? You may be surprised to learn that it was, and is, Jesus. That’s right, the Lord Jesus. When you examine His life, as described in the Bible, this is the only conclusion at which to arrive. He left Heaven to come and find us. And to make us His friends. He lived with us, he suffered, cried, and grieved with us, and then…and then…died in our place. As it says in the Bible, no better friend than one who will give his life for his friend.
Jesus was a friend to all. He was a friend to, and enjoyed children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
He was a friend to the common man, even sinners. The Bible says, “And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.” (Mark 2:15)
Don’t be afraid to get to know this friendliest man who ever lived. He’s approachable, loving and kind.
