In this message Senior Pastor David Ball shares a story from his youth, watching his coach chat and laugh with the coach of the opposing team. Returning to his own young charges the coach confided: "I hate that guy." When the boys were bewildered by what appeared to be hypocrisy, their coach explained, " You never know when you'll need a friend." Having an insider when you need a friend makes all the difference. And we have our own insider, our Jesus, who ascended to heaven and will return to take us with Him.
