Jesus wants to be our friend forever

Posted by Central Preschool

Now we learn about an awesome moment Jesus shared with His friends, the disciples. They were out in a boat fishing. Then, they looked out across the water and saw someone they had been missing. It was Jesus! They quickly went ashore and found Jesus cooking breakfast for them right there on the beach. Can you even imagine? They went from thinking they had lost their friend, Jesus, to eating breakfast with Him on a beach!

Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Have you ever called someone your BFF? Maybe just the sound of it has you thinking of someone right now. BFF— Best Friend Forever. It’s hard to be a BFF, even with the best of intentions. It’s hard for you and me, but not for Jesus.

Jesus is the one friend that not only wants to be our friend forever, but He can actually keep up His end of the promise. And, He went through a lot to make it possible. That’s why, this month, we are sharing the Good News with preschoolers that Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Your friend. My friend. Their friend. Everyone’s friend—forever!

The best things that go together are my friend, Jesus, and me. And nothing, not even death, can come between us and His promise, because we go together forever and ever.
