Come out you daughters of Zion
and look at King Solomon
wearing the crown.
The crown with which his mother crowned him
on the day of his wedding,
the day his heart rejoiced.
Song of Songs 3: 11
Have you wondered why many preachers of the Word speak with so little authority, so little effect?
When you return home from a church service does what they spoke stay with you, or is it hard to remember? I’ve questioned this many times wishing I had the answer to this dilemma. What makes the discrepancy?
The story of the Shulamite girl and Solomon in Song of Songs is a depiction of King Jesus’ love for you and me. It is not a passive feeling expressed, but passionate and undeniable love. A person’s words without an encompassing, experiential, and abiding love for Jesus, falls to the earth powerless without the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Many pastors and speakers have charisma and can give an excellent performance that people flock to see or come to hear the pleasing speeches that tickle the ears. None of these change a life unless the hearer is honestly seeking God. Then Jesus will over-ride the deficiency to reach the one who is longing for intimacy with Him.
There is another reason people are indifferent that’s not the fault of the orator. The heart of the listeners are not interested in change. Satisfied with the offerings of the world, they close their ears to His call.
We desperately need power-filled Jesus lovers who willingly speak as given utterance by the Spirit of God. It is the Spirit speaking to the heart that bursts through walls of resistance.
We are running out of time, dear reader. Jesus is ready to claim His children and bring them to the wedding supper of the Lamb.
Is your heart open for the Lord’s love to flood your existence? Seek it! Claim it! Let nothing stop you from receiving such a love!
Revelation 3:20 Living Bible (TLB)
20 “Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me.
