The Royal Robe

by Amy Sizemore

Explaining to the children how Jonathan gave his robe to David made Jesus’ sacrifice so visible. I had to choke back tears of gratitude. I moved a robe from my shoulders to a child’s to show what it looked like.  We discussed how the robe represented royalty as well as covered David.  The same way Jesus gave up His royal privileges to come rescue us.  He made us royal (co-heirs with Christ, Romans 8:17) and covered our sinfulness with His righteous robe (Isaiah 61:10).  We will never find another friend who will do all of that!  I was affirmed too that we can trust Jesus to be the loyal, covenant-keeper for us the same way Jonathan was with David.  It is a beautiful blessing to see Jesus in the Old Testament.  Our prayer for all of the children and families being impacted through Thistlebend is that we will forever grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
