Take Me Away With You

Take me away with you – let us hurry! Let the King bring me into his chambers. – Song of Solomon 1:4

The older commentaries took the Song of Solomon as an allegory of the love between Christ and His Church. Today, most see this book as an idealized description of the sensual love between a man and a woman as God would have it.

As such, it can still function to describe the relation­ship between Jesus and His Church, for Ephesians 5:21-31, which speaks of husbands and wives, closes by applying it to Christ and the Church as well.

In the verse above, do you see the urgency expressed by the bride as she longs for the King (her espoused husband) to take her away into his chambers?

This is the urgency the Church is to have for the return of the Lord to take us home. Revelation 21:1 speaks of the new heaven and the new earth – and of “the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”

In this supper, we “show forth the Lord’s death until He comes.” That is, this feast is but a foretaste of the wedding supper of the Lamb and of His bride. It looks forward to the Lord’s coming return.

Am I as eager for that Day to come as a bride is for her husband to take her away into his chambers? If not, is it because my love for Him is weak and dim?

Lord, let my love for Jesus burn bright as I eagerly await His coming! Amen!
