November 21, Rejoicing with the Bride


He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
—Song of Solomon 2:4
Holy feeling had an important place in the life of our Lord. “For the joy that was set before him” (Hebrews 12:2) He endured the cross and despised its shame. He pictured Himself crying, “Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost” (Luke 15:6).
On the night of His agony He “sang a hymn” before going out to the Mount of Olives. After His resurrection He sang among His brethren in the great congregation. (See Psalm 22:22.)
And if the Song of Solomon refers to Christ (as most Christians believe it does) then how are we to miss the sound of His rejoicing as He brings His Bride home after the night has ended and the shadows have fled away? POM111

Walk in the light! and you shall know
That fellowship of love,
His Spirit only can bestow
Who reigns in light above. HCL291
