As I journey through Song of Songs or Song of Solomon, I find it very challenging but very beneficial. The representation in Song of Songs 3:6-4:7 is of the church or the bride riding in a chariot through the desert and believers are filled with the graces of God’s Spirit as their hearts are nourished by the gospel. The bridegroom is Christ who directs believers to where they may find him; in His church.
As I studied this passage, I was amazed at the passion of Christ. In Matthew 4:8-10, the Word says the following:
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you, “he said, “If you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”
Jesus refused from Satan all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor because of His love for the Father and the church.
This day with God, let us be inspired by this passion of Christ who prayed and listened for instructions. Opportunities to do great things are right in front of us so let’s give God our best. If we express hope and show enthusiasm, others will be more open to the Gospel. The effect is more decision for Christ and a reinvigorated church.
