Have you ever wanted to have a friend who knows you completely, and loves you immensely? When you are at your worst, a friend who will not give up on you. In times of difficulty and despair, a friend who stays close and truly cares. This is Jesus.
Although He created the heavens and the earth, He is interested in you. He always has time to listen. He is never bored with your endless conversations. Always willing to forgive, never impatient or condemning. And when you realized that you wanted to live forever and be forgiven for all your sins, He came to you and offered His life in exchange for yours. Two thousand years ago, He allowed evil men to brutalize Him and tear His body to pieces, all so that He could take the punishment for your sins, removing any chance that you would suffer judgement for them in the future.
