"There Is A Friend That Sticketh Closer Than A Brother"

Proverbs 18:24


Where can we find the complete fulfillment of these words, except in Him, who became our Brother, that he might cleave to us "closer than a brother" in tenderness and help? (Heb. 2:11, l4-18). We bear witness that Jesus Christ is the greatest, best, most loving, and faithful of friends. Truly, he "loveth at all times". Christ is a Friend to those who have no other friends. He is a Friend who abides when all others are gone. Christ is a Friend always present. In temptation, he is a way of escape. In affliction, he is the divine comforter. In death, he is our sustainer. In eternity, he is our reward. What brother sticketh so close as Christ, our Divine Friend?
