Song of Solomon 2:8-10 – An Intimate Relationship

Song of Solomon 2:8-10
8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

-Song of Solomon tells the story of King Solomon’s relationship with a Shulamite woman, but spiritually, it points towards our relationship with Jesus Christ.  You know the excitement you feel when you are in a new relationship with someone special and they call you on the phone or show up on your doorstep?  That’s the way you should feel all the time when you come into the Lord’s presence.  The very deep, emotional connection outlined in Song of Solomon may seem unusual as it relates to our fellowship with God, but it is vital nonetheless.
