Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth-For your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, Your name is ointment poured forth; Therefore, the virgins love you. Draw me away! Song of Solomon 1:2-3 NKJV
This book is the passionate love story of King Solomon and a Shulamite woman. It also represents God’s passionate love for you!
The man with hundreds of wives and concubines fell so deeply in love he shared it with generations of unborn believers. Solomon slipped away from the palace into the arms of his beloved. He went to a place only lovers know!
Forty-five years ago, I walked into a convenience store. I made eye contact with a beautiful girl. She walked out as I walked in. I turned to look at her. She turned to look at me. The next time we met my heart melted. My life was never the same.
I sang “I only have eyes for you” to my sweet love. She served delicious meals and got lost in my eyes as I tasted her delicacies. I sat on the grass behind her house with a sign that read “I love you.” She looked down at me with longing in her eyes.
I ran across the street jumped the fence and met my love. Each kiss was sweater than the last. Each embrace led me deeper into a place I had never known. Our hearts and bodies became one. I refused to let go. I surrendered to love. So did my beloved!
Five years after surrendering so completely to love I hardened my heart. I neglected and rejected the sweet love I held so dear. Her eyes no longer moved me. I ignored the sweet songs of love her heart whispered in my ear. Our bodies were no longer one.
God intervened. He had His way. The beauty of that love is at my side today!
There is a love that surpasses the steamy pages of Solomon’s Song. It fills the deepest darkest pits with hope. The kiss of His Spirit fills our hearts and souls. It flows into the lives of people only God truly knows. It transforms people who surrender to God’s love!
God’s love is so great not even Solomon could put it into words. It is too mysterious for the mind of man. The Shulamite woman did not need anyone to explain Solomon’s love. His kiss whispered it into her ear. His body drew her near.
People who surrender deeply to the love of God are drawn to a place only they know!
Has your love for God has grown cold and stale? Return to the secret place where Jesus waits. The Lord will whisper secret words of love eternal and real only God can reveal!
I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies. SOS 6:3
Do not neglect God’s precious love. Let Jesus water you with it. Drink deep of your beloved. Receive His love today. Let Jesus draw you away to a place only lovers of God know. Jesus can sweep you away to the place where true love never grows cold or stale!
