"The Greatest Thing
to Ever Happen to Me"

I needed a Friend!

By Max D. Hutto

I grew up in a Christian home. We were at church every time the doors were open. I was basically a good kid, yet I did some things I was not suppose to do. 

When I was 9 years old, I began to wonder, "Why we went to church?" and "Who was this Jesus?" I began to listen to the preacher and the teachers as they shared from the Bible. 

Soon I realized that Jesus wanted to be my friend. I needed a friend! Yet, there was something that kept us apart. That was the wrongs that I had done. The Bible calls that sin. I had done things that God didn't want me to do. I must take the punishment for these wrongs, these sins. That punishment is separation from God, called death. However, Jesus has already taken my punishment by His death on the Cross. All I had to do was to accept His gift to me through prayer in faith. I prayed, that is just talking to God, asking Him to forgive me and to be my personal Savior and Lord. He now is in control of my life.  

For more than 40 years, I have had a friend with me wherever I go. That friend is Jesus. He helps me face life with all of its troubles and trials. Without my friend Jesus, I could not make it.  

Has anything like this ever happened to you?
It can. Jesus wants to be your friend too. He wants to help you face each day.

I would love to hear from you and help you come to know my friend, Jesus.
