Pocket Sized Thoughts – Song of Solomon – Part 11

As His love begins to have full sway in her life, the fruits of union with Himself begin to be recognized as she enters into the measure and stature of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:13). She is compared to a palm tree (7:7), which is an emblem of uprightness and is found in both Solomon’s and Ezekiel’s temples. It is unaffected by the heat of the desert sun and yields much fruit. Her union with Christ is so complete, she no longer speaks of ‘me’ and ’mine’, but says “let us go” and “let us arise” (7:11,12) and see how fruitful her ‘garden’ life is. There is mutual joy of walking with Him and not thinking only about ourselves. In this relationship, there is no limit to what she would gladly give, counting loss as gain (Philippians 3:8). This is true communion with Christ in all its maturity.

PRAYER :- “Lord, help me to know more and more of you and walk ever closer with You.”
