Shrek: A King Giving Up The Kingdom For Friendship:  Shrek: A King Giving Up The Kingdom For Friendship Message by Troy Pomeroy with Chad McComas Slide2:  He’d rather live in comfortable surroundings with his friends. Friendships are so important for a good life. The touching story-line in Shrek the Third is about a person next in line for the kingship, yet he has no desire to have the job. Slide3:  Friendships are more important than position or power. These never lead to true satisfaction …rather they only disappoint and leave one empty. The following message about friendship reminds us of some old stories of the power of friends and it points us to the only true friend we can count on. Slide4:  It has been said that if you have a few truly good friends in your lifetime, you are a blessed person. ● Indeed friendship can be counted amongst the greatest of God’s gifts that He imparts upon us. ● Like all of His creation, friends come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and personalities. ● And like God’s creational and spiritual gifts, they often come to us at exactly the right time and in exactly the right way that we need. Slide5:  Sometimes friends care for us in the way that Abraham looked after and cared for his nephew Lot. ● They take us on their journeys and adventures and put our needs and the honor of our friendship above their own needs. ● And if we’re really lucky, they may bail us out of trouble we’ve gotten ourselves into. Slide6:  Other times, good friends empathize with our trouble and bring comfort to us. ● This is what Job’s friends did when they “heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him.” (Job 2:11,NIV) Slide7:  Friends can also share such deep love, commitment, and loyalty toward each other that they refuse to be separated. ● What a blessed thing it is to have a friend that is always by your side! ● This is the case with Elijah and Elisha. Three times Elijah tells Elisha to stay behind, and three times Elisha responds, “As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you." (2Kings 2:2, 4, 6, NIV) Slide8:  Similarly, it is also the case with Ruth and Naomi: ● Ruth answered, "Please don't tell me to leave you and return home! I will go where you go, I will live where you live; your people will be my people, your God will be my God. I will die where you die and be buried beside you. May the LORD punish me if we are ever separated, even by death!" (Ruth 1:16-17, CEV) Slide9:  Perhaps one of the most friendships in Scripture is between David and Jonathan: ● “Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. . . And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself” (1Samuel 18:1,3, NIV). ● This kind of friendship is somewhat rare and if found should be highly valued. It is a friendship that runs thicker than the blood of family. Slide10:  David and Jonathan is also an illustration of how we should love each other within the body of Christ. ● Under the right circumstances, friendships within the body transcend normal boundaries. ● This is further found in the relationship between the Apostle Paul and Timothy, whom Paul would refer to as his son. Slide11:  Of course, there has never been a friend like Jesus, who would reveal the mysteries of and provide access to the Father. “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” (John 15:15, NIV) Slide12:  What a strange and delightful thing that our Master and Lord would call us friends. ● All the wonderful qualities in the varieties of friends we enjoy are wrapped up in Him. ● And there are things yet to be expressed by Him and experienced by us. Those whom He knows and calls friends can look forward to that relationship for eternity. ● For the present time, however, we get the privilege of seeing glimpses of Him in the good qualities we enjoy in our friends.
