A Friend To All

'He left the heavenly courts for a life of reproach and insult, and a death of shame. He who was rich in heaven's priceless treasure, became poor, that through His poverty we might be rich.' (DA417)

Jesus 'never forces His company upon anyone. He interests Himself in those who need Him. Gladly will He enter the humblest home, and cheer the lowliest heart.' (DA800)
'So full of sympathy and love was His attitude that the poorest were not afraid to come to Him. He was kind to all, easily approached by the most lowly.' (WM170)
'Never were those repelled that sought His grace. A homeless wanderer, reproach and penury His daily lot, He lived to minister to the needs and lighten the woes of men, to plead with them to accept the gift of life. The waves of mercy, beaten back by those stubborn hearts, returned in a stronger tide of pitying, inexpressible love.' (GC20)
'No circumstances of birth or nationality, no condition of life, can turn away His love from the children of men. To every soul, however sinful, Jesus says, If you would only ask Me, I will give you living water.' (DA194)
He 'knows us individually, and is touched with the feeling of our infirmities. He knows us all by name. He knows the very house in which we live, the name of each occupant. Every soul is as fully known to Jesus as if he were the only one for whom the Saviour died. The distress of every one touches His heart. The cry for aid reaches His ear.' (DA479/480)
'Jesus is attractive. He is full of love, mercy, and compassion. He proposes to be our friend.' (ST87-03-17)
