Feeling Friendless?

As I was preparing for the Calvinist piety class I am auditing, I came accross this quote in the second sermon of Richard Sibbes' Bowels Opened: or, a Discovery of the Neare and Deare Love, Union, and Communion Betwixt Christ and the Church (Text available on EEBO). Sibbes says it well.

"What comfort is this to a poor soul that hath no friends in the world, that yet he hath a friend in heaven, that will own him for his Brother, in, and through whom he may go to the throne of grace boldly, and pour out his soul."

I've got some great friends (like you Tim!) and that's still a great encouragement to me ...
