“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—
for your love is more delightful than wine.
3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
your name is like perfume poured out.
No wonder the young women love you!
4 Take me away with you—let us hurry!
Let the king bring me into his chambers.” (Song of Solomon 1:1-4)
I remember reading this and totally getting undone! My soul getting filled with such delight and awe! God is the master at romance! Strange but True! That was the primary reason He created us, for Love. Our souls will never be truly satisfied by anything else other than His Love which intoxicates as wine.
“My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.” (Psalm 63:5)
Most people even some Christians sad to say, cannot imagine or even accept how one can be possibly intimate with God. That’s the mystery of what the cross did for us! It tore open the temple curtains that separated us from entering the Holy of Holies~ allowed us to enter straight into the ‘King’s Chambers!’. We are now free to experience the most amazing love relationship with our maker! We are the perfect bride of Christ. This is a Love that no husband, wife, mother, Father, child or friend could ever give you! It is an AGAPE LOVE only unique to God. It is unconditional, active and self-sacrificing. How amazing is that! But just like any other love relationship God wants us to willingly respond and come because we choose to and not because He thrust it on us. After all that wouldn’t be Love right? He however pursues us and woos us to Himself because He is crazy in Love with us!
“As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you!” Isaiah 62:5
“Look at you! You are so beautiful, my True Love! Look at you! You are so beautiful! Your eyes are like doves! Like a lily among thorns, so is my true love among the young women.” (Song of Solomon).
