Now observe the church’s feelings toward Jesus:
My lover [husband] is radiant and ruddy,
outstanding among ten thousand.
His head is purest gold;
his hair is wavy
and black as a raven…
His mouth is sweetness itself;
he is altogether lovely.
This is my lover, this is my friend…
I belong to my lover,
and his desire is for me…
Let us go early to the vineyards…
there I will give you my love.
The mandrakes send out their fragrance,
and at our door is every delicacy,
both new and old,
that I have stored up for you, my lover.
(SONG OF SONGS 5:10-11,16; 7:10,12-13)
Do you sense Jesus’s desire for you as part of His Bride?
