Song of Solomon 2v16-17

He Is Mine, I Am His


Come to a truth that is fundamental to our understanding of this of book, of marriage and our relationship with Jesus Christ.

Song of Solomon 6:3

3 I am my lover’s and my lover is mine;

he browses among the lilies.

2.      Commitment

Genesis 2:24

24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

b.      Belonging

1 Corinthians 7:3-5

3 The husband should fulfil his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.4 The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.5 Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

c.      Loving Submission

Ephesians 5:22-23

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Saviour.

I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one’.

I will say to those called ‘Not my people’, ‘You are my people’;

and they will say, ‘You are my God.’ ”

 25 As he says in Hosea:

“I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people;

We truly belong to Christ.
