David: Every David Needs a Jonathan

Back to Message Archive

“Then Jonathan made a covenant with David,

because he loved him as his own soul.” -1 Samuel 18:3

God wants us to seek out MEANINGFUL friendship with one another.

 

“Friendship is the greatest of worldly goods, certainly

to me it is the chief happiness of life.” -C.S. Lewis

 

“Covenant friendship” is marked by:

  1. TRUST

 

 

  1. SELF-SACRIFICE

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for ADVERSITY.”

(Proverbs 17:17)

 

  1. PRESENCE

“He appointed twelve…so that they might be WITH Him…” (Mark 3:14)

“No longer do I call you servants…but I have called you FRIENDS…” (John 15:15)

 

The FAITH of Four Friends (Mark 2:1-12)
