Today’s Topic (Deeper Life Daily Manna 13th March 2021 Devotional) Waiting For His Return
Key Verse: “The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills” (Song of Solomon 2:8).
TEXT: SONG OF SOLOMON 2:1-9
Today’s Message: (DCLM Daily Manna for Saturday 13 March 2021 Devotional)
An old woman recounted how lonely she was shortly after marriage. Her husband was conscripted into the British royal army barely one year after their wedding, during the World War II. She was restless, expectant, eager and anxious throughout the period. There was no cell phone with which she and her husband could communicate. But she communed with God for him unceasingly. According to her, her joy knew no bounds on 10th May, 1949 when her long-awaited beloved came back home safe and sound.
Today’s text talks about the loving and unfeigned relationship between two lovers. This typifies the relationship between Christ (the Bridegroom) and the Church (the Bride). Christians are here contrasted with unbelievers in the type of fruits they bear. While believers are spiritually beautiful, loving, bearing the desirable fruit of righteousness with perfect peace in their minds, sinners are despicable, noxious and unpleasantly worthless like thorns and briers.
The bridegroom and the bride have professed true love to each other, not the type of deceptive, false and flattering love that sinners profess to one another through lust and infatuation. Christ’s love for the Church is selfless, sacrificial and sincere. This deep affection motivated Him to suffer and die on the cross to redeem man to Himself. Christ has gone to heaven to prepare a place where He would receive the redeemed upon His imminent return.
The Church should respond in full reciprocation and demonstration of her true love to her Bridegroom who died so that she could live. She should be occupied for the Lord in this period of waiting through holy living, constant watching, diligent work, unceasing prayer, tireless evangelism, keeping pure and serving the Body of Christ in true devotion and dedication.
Thought for Today: Be ready for the Lord’s imminent return.
