Jesus was known as a friend. It didn’t matter who you were, Jesus would befriend you. He noticed the unnoticeable, touched the untouchable, and loved the unlovable. He didn’t spend time with people to get something out of them, but to give something to them and simply because he enjoyed their company.

Do you stand for what you believe, or are you a “chameleon,” always changing your beliefs, desires, and even personality according to others? God doesn’t want us to feel like we have to conform in order to be accepted, and wants to help us become strong enough to stand for what we believe and who we are.

The friendships we choose to build are a reflection of who we are. God wants us to have friendships that make us better. If we are going to grow and become the people he is calling us to be, we need to have meaningful, deep, and challenging friendships both with him and the relationships around us.

If having faith feels like a constant struggle, that’s because it is! God gives us the armor and the weapons we need to not only fight back, but to defeat these spiritual enemies. Check out Ephesians 6 to learn how to arm yourself spiritually and come through Satan’s attacks standing strong.
