Arise, My Love

by Pastor Ken

“For behold, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth. The time of the singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree ripens her green figs. The vines are in blossom. They give out their fragrance. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.”

Song of Solomon 2:11-13

This is description of Jesus in poetic form. Solomon’s description using some of nature’s most endearing elements paints a beautiful word picture: Winter is gone. The spring rain makes the grass green and flowers bloom. The sound of birds singing in the sky, the greening of the forest, the fig trees and vines break out with their new blossoms. Can’t you just see, hear, and taste the beauty! 

“Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.” 

Your spiritual husband is Jesus and He is calling you through the beauty of nature to come to Him, to have intimate fellowship with Him. So, look around you at the beauty of nature because the more you see of Jesus in nature the more you want to know Him and experience the beauty and perfection of who He is, Savior, Christ, and the LORD. 

Prayer: Lord, You are my everything. In You I see all I wish to have and be. Thank you for loving me so much to save me. In your beautiful name, I pray, amen.
