(Today’s fasting and prayer Scripture— Psalm 23—- We have a shepherd that provides all that we need.  He is our guide, our nurturer, our protector, our comforter, our constant Companion and we will be with Him forever.  He loves us like no other and is always good to us. This will be my prayer focus that I seek within the hour of 6am, 12pm and 6pm)



 And Jonathan had David reaffirm his oath out of love for him, because he loved him as he loved himself. —I Samuel 20:17

             The first of the Great Commands listed in Matthew 22:36-40 is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”  Jesus said, “This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”  In the above verse we see Jonathan living out this command.  Jonathan loved David “as he loved himself.”

                       Is this how we love others?  Do we consider their interests or just our own? (Philippians 2:1-4).  In the above verse and in the context of that verse, Jonathan was looking out for the best interests of David even though Jonathan could die for doing so.  That is a loving commitment to someone!  So, do we have relationships like that?  I am so grateful Jesus loves us like that!

           Dear Father I am so grateful to know that Jesus loves me like no other.  I am grateful to know He always has my best interests in mind.  Oh, that I would be lovingly obedience to Your desires by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.  Oh, I so look forward to the end of this age when all who love Jesus will be with Him forever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cx9-LkuVWt4
