Preface - Achish putteth confidence in David. Saul, who had before destroyed the workers with familiar spirits, afraid of the host of teh Philistines, and forsaken of God, hath recourse to a with at En-dor, whom he persuadeth to raise up Samuel. Saul, being informed by Samuel of his approaching ruin, faiteth. The soman and his servants prevail upon him to take some food for his refreshment.
1 Samuel 28
Preface - Paul vindicateth his apostolical character, and right to a maintenance from the churches; though he relinguished that right for the furtherance of the gospel, not content with doing only his indispensable duty; but voluntarily subjecting himself in many points, where he was otherwise free, in order thereby to win over more converts to Christ. Those who contend for a corruptible crown use much labour and abstinence, so doth the apostle strive for one that is incorruptible.

Because as he is, so are we in this world - 1 John 4 v 17
If you love an absent person, you will love their picture. What is it that the sailor's wife keeps so closely wrapped in a napkin, laid up in her drawer among sweet smelling flowers? She takes it out morning and evening, and gazes at it through her tears. It is the picture of her absent husband. She loves it because it is like him. It has many imperfections, but still it is like him. Believers are the pictures of God in this world. The Spirit of Christ dwells in them. They walk as He walked. True, they are full of imperfections; still they are true copies. If you love Him, you will love them; you will make them your bosom friends.
