Building Friendships that Matter

One of the greatest things that we have in life is friendship.

Friendships can broken down into three main groups:

Acquaintances - These are people that you may know only slightly…

Family - These are the people that love you, and you’re always a part of, no matter what…

Close Friends - These are the people that you do everything with, and share everything with...

When you think of Jesus Christ, what kind of relationship do you have with Him?

Is He merely an acquaintance? Are you a part of His family? Or is He your closest friend?

First, if you don’t really know who Jesus Christ is, allow me to share who He is with you.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to earth with the sole purpose of providing a way for us to escape the punishment that results because of our sins.  The only way to escape the judgment was from a blood sacrifice.  On Calvary, Jesus Christ was crucified for you, and for me. Through this, He provided a way of atonement for our sins. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” By doing this, God showed that he loves you!

Second, if you’re not a part of God’s family, you can join it today! Through the blood of Christ’s sacrifice, we can be completely forgiven of our sins, and we then join the family of God. How can I join? All that is required is for you to realize that you have sinned against God, and that in and of yourself, there’s absolutely nothing that you can do to fix your relationship with God. Then, you must pray to God and repent of your sins, ask for forgiveness, and then believe that Jesus Christ is who He says He is – the Son of God – and that He will do what He said He would do. In Acts 16:31, we read, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved…” It’s truly that simple. There’s no cost; it’s completely free! Will you join God’s family today?

Third, if you’re already a part of God’s family, is Jesus a close friend? Is He your best friend? Whenever I am tired, or lonely, or hurting, I know that I can turn to Jesus Christ and talk to Him about anything. He’s always there for me… In the book of First Peter, chapter five, we read, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” When things in life weigh us down and discourage us, we can share them with Christ, and he’ll sustain us throughout those trials.

So, are you a member of God’s family? If not, will you join today?

In Christ,

Who am I?

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

My name is Rob Logan, and I am currently majoring in Biblical studies at Maranatha Baptist Bible College. I enjoy playing music, drawing, playing sports, as well as participating in many other activities.

Like most teenagers, I had many questions about life... What is my purpose? What is life really about? What is God really like? How can I know his view of my life? Have you ever had any questions similar to these? If so, I would like to invite you to join me as we begin a journey to discover what God has to say about us, and what He has to say about our relationship with Him.

If you would like to contact me, you can do so by emailing me at the following address:  You can also sign up for the Teen Talk forum, which is located at the bottom of the blog. On the forum, you can ask questions, post prayer requests, as well as discuss things about the Bible and God.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see y'all soon!
