His legs are pillars of marble
set on bases of pure gold.

Song of Songs 5:15

The glowing description of her beloved by the bride is summarised in the phrase, he is altogether lovely. He is indeed the ‘chief among ten thousand’.
Is that how we view our wonderful Saviour and Lord?
Solomon’s bride searched for her beloved and when successful, she declaimed, ‘When I found the one my heart loves, I held him and would not let him go.’ (3:4)
Is that how we feel? Think back to the day when you were saved. How did you feel then? Let us make sure that we do not become like the Ephesians who had left their first love (Rev.2:4).
