Wonderful Account From Song Of Song

The Song Of Song ‘Song Of Solomon’, is a poetic conversation loves, but it doubles as a parallel for Christ’s love for the Church. he young man represents Christ. and the young woman represents the Church.

The Holy Spirit appears a few times in the Song Of Songs, as the unquenchable fire of God’s love for us 8 verses 6 & 7.

If we having a problem with this book, maybe the problem is not with the Song. but with us. The Bible has a lot to say about the bad side of love, about degradation and lust, the Song is about celebration of what is good about physical love, affirming it’s spontaneity ,power and mystery.  the Song is about love – both physical and emotional. We should never be uncomfortable with the stories of Great love.

So we should caution ourselves against allowing sex to become an idol. It also challenges our spirituality. our desire for God is rarely as intense, as our desire for a partner. This can be put down to the fall of mankind, for our partners are mortal and temporary, but Our God is eternal and everlasting.
