Old Testament Lesson

Friendship is a good and noble thing. Jonathan and David were great friends. In times of trial they were there for one another. They supported each other, cared for each other, could be counted on to help the other in time of need. We all need friends like that. We all need friends that we can count.

And we all need to be friends like that. We all need to be the kind of person that others can count on. We need to be the kind of friend that we would like to have. And in doing that we find we have those friends we need.

New Testament Lesson

God makes a way. God is always at work, and is doing more than we can ever imagine. Peter surly thought his time was up. He must have thought that it was over and his end had come. But God, He had other things in mind. He made a way for Peter to escape, to continue doing what God had called him to do. God will make a way. Today, and each day of our lives. God will make a way.

Gospel Lesson

The type of friendship that David and Jonathan had is the kind of friendship seen here. We see these friends taking this one to Jesus. Going through whatever it would take to make sure that their friend had the chance to meet Him and experience His healing power. They were determined to do what they had to do for their friend. That's what friends do.
