Come out, you daughters of Zion,
and look at King Solomon wearing the crown,
the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding,
the day his heart rejoiced.
Song of Songs 3: 11
What I received from Jesus today is: Longing for the wedding!
This chapter is talking about how the bride longing for the groom and how she describes the wedding procession. I still remember I marked in my diary of a 100 days countdown to my wedding. Started from 100, 99, 98....10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!!! That was 1985 and the first more than fifty I was in Wisconsin and Michelle was in Hong Kong! The expectation, the longing, the love and the joy was all there in that 100 days of countdown. In one word, that is LOVE! Love in that sense is the sweetest relationship in life and that is the purpose of the book, Song of Songs. The love between the bride and the groom and the love between we as the bride and Jesus as the groom. How do we enter into this sweet relationship created by God to a man and a woman and husband and wife! How do we cherish and practice that "lightening" and "like earthquake" love in this relationship because we have that relationship with God! I can promise you if you can enter into this sweet daily intimate personal with Jesus you can love you spouse more and more each day!
The longing for the wedding is the longing for a long lasting sweet and intimate loving relationship to come. Many couples sweet dreams have been destroyed before of their self-centreness. But, most of the cases is they have lost the daily sweet, intimate personal relationship with Jesus. If we can not have that loving relationship with Jesus, it would be very difficult for us to really love our spouse!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to long and enjoy that loving relationship with you daily so that we can long and enjoy our loving relationship with our spouse daily. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
