Longing for the Beloved…

Read: Song of Songs 1-8
Marked: Song of Songs 8:14, The Shulamite Make haste, my beloved, And be like a gazelle Or a young stag On the mountains of spices.

In spite of the world and its ways, life is good and is to be enjoyed. Life lived for Jesus makes it all the more enjoyable.

Yet, Christians should have a strong desire to see Jesus, to be with Jesus, both now and in the kingdom to come.

Am I in love with Jesus in the same sense the Shulamite desires her beloved? Am I longing for the return of my Lord, my beloved? Can I pray alongside the apostle John and say, “Even so, come (make haste) Lord Jesus”.
