What chu looking’ at? – SoS Saturday

The watchmen who beat our girl in the streets are back and they have this to say:

Why should you gaze at the Shulammite,

Song of Songs 6:13

Don’t they have a point?

Why is everyone so interested in seeing this one who is so over the top in her devotion to the Lord?

Shouldn’t we be looking at Jesus? Isn’t it supposed to be about Him?

This Song is so different that what we hear in Church sometimes.

Sometimes in church I hear that I am ugly and hopeless.

Sometimes in church I hear that in me there is no good thing – nothing good in me. I am filthy and wretched, worthless and unworthy.

Yet in this Song, time and time again we hear the voice of the Lord taken by His brides beauty.

Why should we look at this maiden?

Why should we look at this lover of God?

Why should we gaze on this Shulamite?

But then I hear my Father say

How lovely are Your dwelling places, O LORD of hosts! 

Psalm 84:1

Much of this song has been given to the beauty of the bride. When the King of glory looks on His bride, He sees beauty. He sees a holy, perfect, lovely, beautiful godly bride. His delight!

Why should we gaze on this Shulamite?

As you gaze on the Shulamite, no doubt you will see the Christ in her.

God’s desire – God’s hope is Christ in you.
God’s work – God’s plan is Christ in you.
God’s will – God’s way is Christ in you.

The world is crying “We would see Jesus.

He says, “Look at my bride.”

    Great post Ben, we need to see Christ in each of us but we also have to ensure that Christ lives in our heart. I know that we are all sinners but sometimes we speak words that destroy us instead of building us. Thank you and God bless you.
