Pocket Sized Thoughts – Song of Solomon – Part 1

Of all the songs which Solomon wrote (he wrote 1005 – 1 Kings 4:32), this one, called the Song of Songs, is the greatest. It is the greatest, because its theme is the greatest, that is, the theme of love. Though it depicts the love between Solomon and a Shunamite woman, it is not simply a physical love. It is a picture of the love between God and His people, Christ and His bride, the church. It is a love that is enduring, eternal, never fading, or growing weary. It is a love that shines brightly and is better than wine. In fact, it is the best ‘wine’ (see John 2:10), better than anything ever tasted. The response from the one awakened by this incomparable love is “draw me” (1:4). There is more and she wants to pursue it with all her heart. The invitation is there to be brought into the “chambers”, the inner place of intimacy and rest with God. Have our hearts been awakened by this love to stir us into action of ‘running after Him.’

PRAYER :- “Lord, open my eyes to see afresh the wonder and depth of your incomparable love.”
