LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP

image

A friend adds a certain colour to life, true love from a friend is heart warming…  you can never separate love from friendship, it’s where it all starts; the blossoming of romance… – MOL360

So far we have looked at God loving us, loving God, loving ourselves and others; if you haven’t read them, then please make out time to do so. *smile*

Naturally I have chosen a friendship in the bible that was a clear example, David and Jonathan…
They seemed so close and paddie- paddie like that I couldn’t help but admire their relationship.

1 Samuel 18 vs 1 and 3-4 (MSG):
1. By the time David had finished reporting to Saul, Jonathan was deeply impressed with David – an immediate bond was forged between them. He became totally committed to David. From that point on he would be David’s number-one advocate and friend.
3-4.   Jonathan, out of his deep love for David, made a covenant with him. He formalized it with solemn gifts: his own royal robe and weapons- armor, sword, bow, and belt. 

I wonder if David decided to give Jonathan his sling in return…

Like why would Prince Jonathan decide to befriend shepherd boy David? What did he see in him that made him develop such a close relationship and love so sincere, especially between men! (Ladies what’s up with us nau?)

Anyway back to the matter.

David had a profound faith in God. As a young boy, he went to meet Goliath without wearing any sort of protection, but with only knowing God. It showed his tremendous faith and  fearlessness. This is one of the things Jonathan might have seen in David.

I also believe they had view things in common:
– They shared the same religion
– They both loved and feared God, and I guess Jonathan saw it best to be close to the person who is close to God.
-And with their love… so deeply rooted in God’s love,  I won’t be surprised, if they sat down on the hills in the cool of the day, discussing the word of God and His goodness.
Jonathan didn’t do this with other people, probably ’cause there really was no one to converse with about such things,  but permit me to say God brought David his way. . .
If you yearn for such relationship with someone, even with your spouse,  it’s not impossible. Just talk to God about it 🙂

A friendship of two people that centres around a love for God will be strong and will last a long time. These kind of friends don’t think about what is best for ME, but what is best for each other, and how to glorify God. (Bible.org)

                     Then again. . .

There’s Jesus and He is our greatest friend.
Jesus who came and called us friends with the condition of us doing what He commanded.

John 15:14 (AMP), ‘You are MY friends if you keep on doing the things which I command you to do.’

Now don’t twist your face and think Jesus did prejudice or something by putting a condition. He sat among sinners, and they also became his friend once they abandoned their unjust ways. Don’t forget Amos 3:3 saying can two walk together unless they be agreed…

Jesus would always be our greatest friend,  who loved us so much that he came to die for us. So how’s your relationship with Him? Do you call on Him when things are down? Your friends can’t be with you 24/7, but Jesus is always there.
Imagine God looking at His children getting along with each other and smiling. . . And imagine Jesus telling God how close you guys are. . . Lovely isn’t it?
Build your friendship with Him and cherish it!

             ~  Forever Loving You ~

P.s If you haven’t really been a good friend to those around you… then make amends now… stop the argument you guys are having… pray for them… show love to them (brotherly and sisterly love o 🙂 ) , let them know you care…

So I want to appreciate a few of my friends… you people plenty sha, but I would like to say a special thanks to those that have worked behind the scenes with the blog… Mr Adejumo, Seyi Adesanya, Dapo Omotosho,  Rotimi Ogunyinka and Ayo Alao. Thank you all so much and God bless you! 🙂

APOLOGIES…

Hi everyone! I’m so sorry for my absence. Apparently,  I set out to have some fun on the beach but at the end of the day, though I did have loads of fun, I had to deal with my phone falling into salt water…

Yh… I know, what was I thinking… taking my phone close to the water. Please believe it was an honest mistake… it happened unexpectedly!
So since November 1st till November 20th, I was completely Internet less… lol. I took it for repairs, but it took longer than expected…and unfortunately it can never be the same again *sniff*…
But thank God for His faithfulness and favor… I was able to get another phone, and now I’m here! I missed y’all… 🙂

So I would be dishing out the continuation of Lola and Segun as well as other articles that talk about friendship , Jealousy, etc.

Don’t let me leave you hanging, lemme share three of my beach pictures with you 🙂
