Everybody loves a good love song now and again. That’s why there are so many online “love song” sites dedicated to accumulating love song lyrics. People just seem to love them!
Now That’s an Old Love Song!
Most of my singles friends who are not Christians are surprised when I tell them that some of the oldest and hottest “love songs” are found in the Bible. I’ll tell you what, King Solomon sure knew how to write a good love song. Take a gander at this:
Bible Verse of Day
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouthâ€”
for your love is more delightful than wine.
Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes;
your name is like perfume poured out.
No wonder the maidens love you!
Take me away with youâ€”let us hurry!
Let the king bring me into his chambers.
Song of Songs 1:2,3,4
Whoa, don’t you just hear the sizzle? I know some Christians reading this are uncomfortable with this kind of language, and try to exegete these passages in a purely symbolic fashion. Ah, I don’t thinks so.
My love song advice for these gracious folks is to…..get over it! Putting on a prudish front only allows the world to misinterpret what true Christianity is all about.
Instead, we need rejoice in the fact that our God created both love and sex to be enjoyed by His children…as long it is in His way and His timing. For the Christian truly following Jesus, this means waiting until marriage.
