The book of SONG OF SOLOMON is seldom considered by even the most devout of Christians. And it is true that some of it is difficult to understand. But, taken as a whole, it is an expression of the love of God for us as evidenced by the love of husband and wife. Even though He has given us the example of marriage it remains impossible for man to fully comprehend the love of God. It behooves us, then, to ponder and meditate on the depth of that love.

“From many standpoints the Bible looks at our spiritual life. Sometimes it is as a life of faith, again as a life of holiness, evermore as a life of service, deepest of all as a life of patience and victorious suffering; but the highest and divinest view of it is a life of love. Nor is it life in any ordinary sense, but the tenderest and most intimate forms, and the most exquisite figures of human affection and friendship are used to describe the unspeakable bond which links the heart of God with the souls He calls to be His own. It is not the love of compassion, not even the stronger love expressed by the relationship of fatherhood, brotherhood and even motherhood, but it is the tie, above all others, which links two hearts in the exclusive affection which no other can share-the love of the bridegroom and the bride, the love which touches all human love with its inexpressible charm, and transfigures and glorifies the humblest lot and the hardest circumstances into a heavenly paradise. This is the meaning of the SONG OF SOLOMON. The opening picture of the Bible is a love song-two hearts, the one born out of the other, and then given back to it in perfect unison, the central figures of earth’s first paradise.”
A. B. Simpson

It is almost unthinkable that we (His children) neglect or take for grant-it what His intimate and unmeasurable love has done for us.

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell.
The guilty pair bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin,
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall for ever more endure-
The saints and angles’ song…(The Love of God)
