Rarely will churches embark on a study of the Song of Solomon. This is mainly due to two reasons. (1) Interpreting the book presents a challenge, and (2) some of the romantic language is a bit more passionate than most are used to hearing during church services. It’s a shame, because few books fully illustrate the love Christ has for His people as the Song of Solomon.
As King Solomon loved the Shulamite woman, so Christ loves us. As Solomon woo’ed the Shulamite woman, so Christ drew us to Himself. As their love endured difficulty at times, so do we often fail our Lord. Yet, as Solomon loved the Shulamite woman, and took her to a special place, so does Christ love us, and will one day take us into His Kingdom.
For a PG interpretation of the Song of Solomon in light of the Gospel, come to worship at Life Point Baptist Church, 11 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019, at 599 Sunrise Drive in Early, TX. Come experience the love of Christ.
