Topic: Real Friends Show Up in a Crisis

“A friend should treat a troubled person kindly, even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty.” Job 6:14 (GW)

Do you know the difference between a friend and an acquaintance? A real friend shows up when you’re in a crisis. When everybody else walks out, real friends walk into your life.

If you’re not sure who your real friends are, wait until your next crisis. Your acquaintances may disappear pretty quickly. But your real friends will keep showing up no matter what.

Did you know the Bible says that, even when people turn their backs on God, they still deserve to have friends? Job 6:14 says, “A friend should treat a troubled person kindly, even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty” (GW).

The first thing everybody needs in a crisis is other people. You need a support group—mature Christian brothers and sisters who will love you, care for you, comfort you, encourage you, support you, meet your needs, and counsel you. That kind of person will gently steer you back to Jesus when life’s difficulties tempt you to abandon your faith.

That’s why I never stop talking about the importance of having close Christian friends you can count on. They might be a small group from your church or a few friends you study the Bible with or pray with regularly.

Build a safety network in your life so, when the rogue winds come, you have genuine friends who will be there for you. When a crisis happens, these are the first people you’ll turn to.

You need your real friends to say, “We’ll pray for you. We’ll believe for you. We’ll be there for you. No matter what.”

Choose to be a true friend to your Christian brothers and sisters in crisis today. And when you go through hard times, you’ll find yourself held up by those same people.
