2 Kiss me and kiss me again, for your love is sweeter than wine. — Song of Solomon 1:2 NLT
The Song of Solomon is a love letter from Jesus to His chosen bride, the Church. It explains how He sees the Church in its purest form, when all the members are living in unity with each other. It gives us a glimpse into the depth, length and width of His love. It shows what great lengths to which He will go to get us to spend time with Him. Everything He created was created for one purpose. That purpose was to bring all the glory to Himself. A part of that glory is the exaltation of the Church to the position of His chosen bride. For the marriage to bring Him glory, the bride must be spotless. He has assured that purity by washing each member in His own blood. When the Holy Spirit comes to each of us, He is not bringing an invitation to the wedding, He is coming with a question from the Bridegroom. The question is, “Will you marry me?” Such love demands a response and a total commitment. Keeping that commitment is not always easy and in the flesh, it is seemingly impossible. But it gets so much easier when we understand that a Holy lifestyle is really about having a love affair with Jesus. The thing that Jesus really wants from us is to be treated the way we treated our first real love. Remember that? That person was on our mind constantly, we were always contemplating how great it would be the next time we were with them and what we could do to please them. Jesus wants us to think about Him that way. Take some time today and just spend it loving on Jesus and allowing Him to love on you. He’s waiting to hear from us now.
