He is our friend

Well, that is indeed how we should view Christ. He is our friend, He is our brother, He is whatever is beautiful and good. He is everything. But most of all He is our friend and He cries out: “Look here, you are my friends, can’t you understand that? We are brothers… Look, I’m not… I’m not brandishing Hell as a weapon, I don’t want to scare you, I love you. I want you to enjoy life with me”
