God woke me up this morning with the Song of Solomon. Solomon was a very passionate man. Whenever he did something, he was all in. He always gave it his very best. That was true in his love for his wife. The Song of Solomon is a book about his love and his wife’s love for him. The book is more than that. It is a book about the love of Jesus for us. And our response to our first love. Solomon’s love woke up from sleep and could not find him. She searched the house, then the garden. When she could not find him, she went into the streets to look for him. She asked everyone where he was and kept searching unto she found him. The Song of Solomon is a personal letter from God to us. It is about how we are to love God. Our love is personal and intimate. This is the way that God loves us. We are to be like Him and love the same way. Our love should burn in our hearts to the point where there is nothing else. You remember when you fell in love for the first time. All you could think about was the one that you loved. You could hardly breathe if you weren’t with your love. This is the love of God for us. And we are the image and likeness of God. Jesus is our first love. So, what am I saying? Come back to your first love with the passion that you first had. Fall in love with Jesus all over again.
“Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death;” (Son of Solomon 8:6 KJV).
