Keep Our Love for Jesus Strong

Song of Solomon 1:4 (ESV) … “Draw me after you; let us run. The king has brought me into his chambers. We will exult and rejoice in you; we will extol your love more than wine; rightly do they love you.”


The Shulamite woman in this verse seeks the one she now desires. Those who know the way are eager to tell where He/Christ can be found, how the distance may be closed (Ephesians 2:13 … “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ) and how to be near Him.


Saintly George Müller of Bristol, the modern apostle of faith, considered it the first and most important duty of the day to get his own soul happy in the Lord and so should we!

The world, after all, is all about us. It is like the sea that surrounds a ship, ever lapping against it, ever seeking for a weakness, ever probing for a crack through which it can pour and so submerge and sink the vessel. The answer to the constant pressure of the world upon our souls is Christ! We must keep our hearts singing in His love, our minds filled with thoughts of Himself, and our wills enslaved to His. Then the world will not get very far with us. Love for our absent Shepherd will be our impenetrable armor.[1]
