“For Your Love Is Sweeter”

2  Kiss me and kiss me again, for your love is sweeter than wine.  — Song of Solomon 1:2 NLT

Song of Solomon 4:1-15 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.

Bring Others Into the Fold

18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.  — 2 Cor. 5:18 NLT

2 Cor. 5:16-21 NLT

God’s plan of salvation is simple. If we believe that Jesus was born to a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, was buried, arose from the tomb three days later, ascended into heaven where He is today interceding in prayer for us, we are saved. Nothing more, nothing less. You have taken the first step on your journey to heaven. Once we have asked Jesus to forgive us of our sins, God’s Holy Spirit takes up residence and abides in us. This causes us to look at everyone and everything differently. We are now a new creation, our old life is gone and we are now in Christ Jesus. As we continue on our journey, we need to spend time talking with Jesus and meditating on God’s Holy Word. This is a free gift from God and we are now restored in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Now, we have become His ambassadors to the world. God is asking each of us to join His work in bringing others into reconciliation with Him. The more we practice this lifestyle, the sweeter our relationship with Jesus becomes. We find that He truly does “grow sweeter and sweeter as the days go by”.  Jesus becomes everything to us and provides everything for us.

Traveling Ambassadors

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.


2 Corinthians 5:16-21 (NLT) 16 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
