Where there is real love for the Lord…

1 Samuel 20:1-42

‘Jonathan loved David as he loved his own soul’ (17). He was ready to die for David (30-33). This is real love and true spiritual fellowship: ‘Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends’, ‘If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another…’ (John 15:13; 1 John 1:7). Where there is real love for the Lord, there will be depth of fellowship among His people. If our love for the Lord is shallow, our interest in other people will be superficial. Don’t be like Saul – ‘backstabbing’, ‘ready to put the knife in’: ‘Any one who hates his brother is a murderer…’ (1 John 3:15). ‘Let there be love shared among us…brotherly love that is real’ (Mission Praise, 411). God will answer this prayer – if we really mean it and don’t just ‘mouth’ it!
