Transforming Lives Through The Love of Christ

Engage The Word – May 17, 2015

1. Before you read, quiet your heart for one minute of silence

 2. Read the following Scripture:

1 Samuel 20:34 – 42

34Jonathan got up from the table in fierce anger; on that second day of the month he did not eat, because he was grieved at his father’s shameful treatment of David. 
35 In the morning Jonathan went out to the field for his meeting with David. He had a small boy with him, 
36 and he said to the boy, “Run and find the arrows I shoot.” As the boy ran, he shot an arrow beyond him. 
37 When the boy came to the place where Jonathan’s arrow had fallen, Jonathan called out after him, “Isn’t the arrow beyond you?” 
38 Then he shouted, “Hurry! Go quickly! Don’t stop!” The boy picked up the arrow and returned to his master. 
39 (The boy knew nothing of all this; only Jonathan and David knew.) 
40Then Jonathan gave his weapons to the boy and said, “Go, carry them back to town.”
41 After the boy had gone, David got up from the south side [of the stone] and bowed down before Jonathan three times, with his face to the ground. Then they kissed each other and wept together–but David wept the most. 
42 Jonathan said to David, “Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other in the name of the LORD, saying, ‘The LORD is witness between you and me, and between your descendants and my descendants forever.’ ” Then David left, and Jonathan went back to the town.

3. What God saying to you through this Scripture?  Pause for another minute and let God speak to you in your silence

John 1:43 – 46
6.  The Gloria
“Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.  World without end.”
 Amen.
