What a friend we have in Jesus! Thank you for your glimpse into the wonderful details of His life and sacrifice.
Oh so beautiful! The love between Jonathan and David was indeed a beautiful foreshadowing of the love we share with Christ. And Jonathan laid down his life and his position for his friend, just like our savior did for us. I have spent considerable time studying David with others and I never saw Jonathan this way before. Thanks for drawing the veil back so I could understand God's message more clearly. Great work!

I completely agree with Debbie's comments; I have never seen Jonathan in this way before. My favorite line is: "Jonathan, O Jonathan! Glimpsing Calvary through you." What a beautiful way to draw the parallel - King Saul's son and David are a picture of God's Son and us. Thank you for sharing! God bless you, Cheri

Like Cheri, my favorite line echoes still "Jonathan, O Jonathan!
Glimpsing Calvary through you
"
He layed it all aside. I don't think we fully grasp that yet, nor will we 'til we see Him face-to-face clothed in kingly attire ever His own. Laying down His weapons on my behalf.

Great job....

Wonderful! I have always loved the relationship between Jonathan and David but you brought out aspects of Christlikeness in Jonathan that I had never seen. Thank you for sharing your discernment and your gift.

Hello dear Crista. I probably won't get to do this every week, but I'll try to do it as often as I can. I really just wanted to let you know that "The King's Son and I" made it into the semi-finalist list for the Friendship Challenge. Be encouraged - you were right up there with the winners. With love, Deb (Challenge Co-ordinator)

Crista,

First off, I love your poem's title - great idea. Second, I, like everyone else, have been impacted to see this, earthly and spiritual brotherhood between these two men, in a new and glorious way. An exceptional poem penned with skill and tenderness. Lovely job, Nancy

Well done Christa, you have woven much through these words.
