Knit Together With Jesus - Cool

1 Samuel 18: 1-4

And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David: and Jonathan loved him as his own soul ... Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.

Taken from His Victorious Indwelling

".....Thus it should be with us and the true David. Love delights to strip itself for its object.

Oh! for more of this spirit of humility! May our hearts be drawn out and knit, more and more, to Christ, in this day of hollow profession, and empty, religious formality! May we be so filled with the Holy Spirit, that wit purpose of heart we may cleave unto our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!"
