The Wine and The Loves

21 Oct

The Wine and The Loves…

In the Song of Solomon, it is written, “For your love is better than wine.” Only it doesn’t really say that. In the original language it reads, “Kee to veem do-dekha mee yayin.” Which is this: “For your LOVES ARE better than WINE.”

The word for LOVE, the Bridegroom’s love, is plural. But the word for WINE, YAYIN, is singular. It means that whatever the world has to offer you, the things you can see with your eyes and touch with your hands – they’re only singular. They end. They run out.

Maybe you’re being tempted by some thing, some pleasure that is not of God. God wants to keep you from misery and emptiness – because that’s what you’ll be left with when the YIN, the wine runs out.

But the love of God is not like that. The love of God never ends, will never fail you. It’s always more – more than you think it is and more than you expect.

Put away that wine, whatever your wine happens to be and find what is better and never ending. That you too might say, “Your love is better than wine.”

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Today, put away that distraction, that diversion, that sin, or that idol God wants you to let go of and replace it with the love, the presence, and the joy of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
