A True Friend Has An Uncommon Love


1 Samuel 18:1-4

The Story
Jonathan removed his princely robe and placed it on David.

Jonathan gave David his sword and bow.

Jonathan gave David his girdle or belt.

Jonathan willingly laid aside the symbols of his position as the crowned prince of Israel and gave them to David.

Jonathan consistently place David ahead of himself.

This was an uncommon love.

It involved selfless, personal and profound sacrifices.

Lessons
The LORD Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, has an uncommon love for His people.

He sacrificed Himself for their salvation.

He sacrificed even His life.

He constantly place them in front of Him.

He makes them into the sons of God.

Remember Jonathan in David's life – He Was A True Friend With An Uncommon Love.
