Go Together

Jonathan said to David, “Go in safety, inasmuch as we have sworn to each other in the name of the Lord, saying, ‘The Lord will be between me and you, and between my descendants and your descendants forever.’ ” Then he rose and departed, while Jonathan went into the city. – 1 Samuel 20:42

David and Jonathan were the best of friends. More than that, they shared a bond that led them to make a pledge that would last beyond both of their lifetimes. In today’s cultural revisionism, such relationships between two men (or women) are appropriated to promote an agenda or sexual ideology. Some have even tried to wrongly reframe David’s and Jonathan’s friendship in this 21st century context.

It is a blessing from God when two men or two women find a common purpose in the Almighty. This kind of friendship is bound together by trust and covenant and blood, Christ’s blood. Many who have served our country in time of conflict have known such relationships and others who have served our Lord in ministry have known it as well.

If you have such a friend, colleague, or co-laborer, give thanks to God. We need each other now more than ever.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. – Helen Keller
