Bringing the Romance Back (5 of 6)
Series: What the Bible Says about Marriage, Love, and Sex
Song of Solomon 6:11-7:10
We continue our study through The Song of Solomon in a series I've entitled What the Bible Says About Marriage, Love, and Sex. We have been introduced to Solomon and his bride. So far, we have seen their courtship displayed as the ooey-gooey young love with nicknames and all. We have seen their honeymoon as we discovered that marriage, love, and sex are some of the greatest gifts God has given us. We have seen their first big fight when he came home late without texting or calling and she wasn't interested in his advances. And, we have seen them kiss and make up…literally, as they both praise one another and express their gratitude for their relationship.
This next section occurs somewhere into their marriage. Remember, this is a song, a poem. Everything doesn't happen in a nice, neat line. We don't know how much later this happened. It could be months, years, or even decades after their wedding ceremony. But what we do know is that we have seen their love grow and mature over time.
And honestly, that's one thing I want you to notice. Lifelong love and romance is possible. Solomon shows us the foundation of lifelong love. I've been married almost 13 years and I want you to know, it just keeps getting better. But I've talked to people who have been married 40 years, and they say the same thing. Your marriage is a marathon, not a sprint. And there are some powerful lessons here to keep you in the race and help you go the distance.
I'm trying to help you. I hope you've discovered that through this series. I want to give you lessons, tools, ideas, and principles that will serve you well in your marriage. Here's something that I think is incredibly valuable.
