Song of Songs, “Devotion” (series 3 of 3)

You, you’re just as sweet as peaches and cream
(To me you’re as sweet as peaches and cream)
You must have stepped right out of my dreams
‘Cause you and I were meant to be
(‘Cause you and I were meant to be)

I, I am a very fortunate guy
(So lucky am I to be by your side)
Lucky to have you all of the time
One of a kind, you know to me you’re so fine
I thank the Lord for you and I, yeah
(I thank the Lord for you and I)

We
(You and I deserve each other’s love)
Just you and I that’s how it will be
(Together we’ll be just you and me)
Let there be nothin’ stand in our way
(You and I deserve each other’s love)
Hear what I say

Because we’re both deserving of
(You and I deserve each other’s love)
Deserving of each other’s love
(We both deserve each other’s love)….

This beautiful love song was performed by the 70’s R&B group L.T.D. (Love, Tenderness & Devotion). The song talks about the kind of devotion to one another that deserves mutual love between couples. The kind of love filled with gratitude for one another and the joy that accompanies true companionship.

The words of Song of Songs 8:6 eloquently portray this kind of devotion to one another with verse like, “Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm.” As I meditated on this scripture, I pictured a tattoo of some sentimental value being artfully created in honor or dedication to someone of importance.

However, the verse in Song of Songs is more than a tattoo; it is the reflection of Godly devotion to a bond that cements the two into one flesh, Genesis 2:24 “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” God’s wisdom for creating oneness out of two is profound, simply because the challenges of life are overcome with unity.

It is my prayer that the God we serve will graciously give everyone who reads this post the kind of unity and devotion to one another as Paul mentions in Ephesians 4:1-3 “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”

To God be the glory and honor, Amen.
