Have you ever wondered why life seems so random and scattered? It's as if our lives are much too complex and overly divided. Think about the various areas of our lives. We have our relational area of life which may include a significant other, kids and friends. We have our work area where we spend 40+ hours a week. We have finances to manage and possessions to keep up. We also have our spiritual lives that must be attended to. On top of those, we have our inner life of varying emotions; such as pain, joy and expectations which seem to go unmet. With a life that seems so compartmentalized, is there any hope of drawing them all together to make sense of the chaos? The Bible gives us good news! Life is all connected! But how? Join us October 12th - December 14th as we discover how the gospel connects all aspects of life together as one unified whole.
As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. And Saul took him that day and would not let him return to his father's house. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own soul.
David saw that Saul had come out to seek his life. David was in the wilderness of Ziph at Horesh. And Jonathan, Saul's son, rose and went to David at Horesh, and strengthened his hand in God. And he said to him, "Do not fear, for the hand of Saul my father shall not find you. You shall be king over Israel, and I shall be next to you. Saul my father also knows this." And the two of them made a covenant before the Lord. David remained at Horesh, and Jonathan went home.
So Mephibosheth lived in Jerusalem, for he ate always at the king's table. Now he was lame in both his feet.
