When you are intimate with someone else, you trust them enough to share your secrets. As God, Jesus already knows everything about you anyway, but when you choose to tell him what’s hidden deep within you, it proves you trust him. This translates to song as well. You can tell when someone knows Him and when someone is going through the motions. Michelle Williams opened up with the beautiful song ‘Believe In Me‘ off her album ‘Journey To Freedom‘. The whole album focuses on being a friend to Jesus and in tuen he will befriend you.

This week on Sunday Best, judges Donnie McClurkin, Kierra Sheard and Yolanda Adams rated the second chance team on ‘ What A Friend ‘ we have in Jesus theme night.
