Why Jesus is my best friend…
If you can imagine a hopeless situation, you’ll see this clearly…
Remember three weeks after i got my driver’s license in 1975? i lost control of our humongous family station wagon on a two-lane country road on a trick-or-treat night.
Looking up and seeing oncoming headlights directly in front of me because i had drifted into the wrong lane (because i was distracted by my two high school classmates riding with me) caused me to panic, overreact with the power-steering, run off the road, hit a culvert – simultaneously hitting the gas instead of the brake – and came to a smashing halt after plowing into a farmhouse porch and front wall. A family sat on the other side eating dinner. Can you imagine their disbelief with the impact’s noise and damage?
Can you imagine if i had hit and killed not one, but multiple trick-or-treaters?
And what if i hadn’t had time to swerve out of the way and caused a head-on collision? Would there have been fatalities, including my own?
What if i didn’t die, but others did. How would i ever reconcile my life?
How would i ever shed the guilt and personal torture?
And that is why Jesus should be your best friend.
