Essentials to Right Relationship 3


God is using Jonathan as an example of the Christian life. And this account of his life sets forth a pattern for us for us to follow.

Jonathan surrendered his life to the anointed King, Submitted to the Kings Authority and rule, and Stood in the promises of the Covenant he had with the King. Why do I say that Jonathan is an example of the Christian life?

Because there is a Son of David who sits upon an eternal throne, One who is greater than David, indeed David said this of Him.

Ps 110:1

10 The Lord says to my Lord:

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies

a footstool for your feet.”

NIV

 

Jesus Christ is the greater Son of David. And this pattern shows us how to relate to Him, and like Jonathan we to must do all three.
