Such a friend

(Thomas Brooks, "Apples of Gold" 1660)

"There is a friend that sticketh closer than
 a brother." Proverbs 18:24

Such a friend is Jesus. He is so a friend
to every one of His people, as if He were
a friend to none besides. Jesus is . . .
  an omnipotent friend;
  an omniscient friend;
  an omnipresent friend;
  an indeficient friend;
  a sovereign friend;
  an immutable friend;
  a watchful friend;
  a loving friend;
  a faithful friend;
  a compassionate friend;
  a close friend,
  a universal friend--a friend in
     all cases and in all places,
  our first friend,
  a constant friend--

"Whom He loved, He loved them unto the end." John 13:1
