Everyone has been called into a deep relationship with Jesus and that intimacy and maturity is woven throughout the book of the Song of Solomon.
There are 4 distinctives in the book of Song of Solomon:
1) Jesus' affection of His people (He enjoys His people & His desire is for each of us)
2) Beauty of Jesus (this is a focus of this book)
3) Beauty of the individual believer, even in our weakness (what we look like to God)
4) A call for partnership with Jesus (we need to know how God wants us to partner with Him to bring His passions & glory to the earth).
To receive the full benefit of the Song of Solomon it has to get into our prayer life & thought life. I've taken phrases/verses to make them a part of a dialogue with God in my time in the Secret Place...I want to know the language of this song. I want this book to fill my heart!
Take these phrases of find phrases throughout the song that nurture and minister to your heart~ use them to meditate on and pray them.
