Focus Beyond Calvary: Focus on Friendship (CD)
A familiar African proverb tells us that a friend is someone with whom we share the path. In an age of instant gratification, the meaning of friendship has been devalued. Superficiality and leveraging others for personal gain have become the norm of the day. Such an observation calls our focus beyond Calvary as we continue to look at Scripture with an “African memory” through the eyes of John Mark, the African writer of the first gospel, and where we are reminded that we need our friends the most in times of great hardship. How many true friends do you have? Are you a friend of God?
