I believe that friendship with Jesus isn’t something we attain “at the end of the road” a long, long time from now — after death, perhaps. Friendship with Jesus is right now, in the midst of life’s joys and life’s struggles. Despite what I might feel from time to time, I am not alone. No matter where I might go I can never really be lost because my Guide is always at hand. All I have to do is open my eyes to see him.
Thomas said to Jesus, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”
Jesus replied, “I am the way.”
John 14, 5-6
