I Want To Take a Friend

In the good old days, that's when our children were little, my wife and I could just decide we were going to go away for the weekend and we'd announce to them where we were going, bundle them into the car and take off. Well, when they got to be teenagers that got to be a little more complicated. Their vote would count a lot more as far as the decision-making process went.
Okay, I would describe this wonderful trip that I had planned, and then they would bring up that very familiar teenage issue no matter how good the trip sounded, "How about my friend? I can't be away from my friends!" And then we would hear this strong appeal from them, "I want to take a friend." Well, depending on where you're going, that just might be a tremendous idea.
When my teenagers knew that they were going to a special place, they usually wanted to take a friend. Well, you are going to the most special place of all. Who is the friend you want to take with you?
Your life takes on a whole new urgency, a whole new importance, a whole new excitement when you think about heaven and you say to Jesus, "I want to take a friend."
