The Song, as in, ‘THE’ Song, is a book in the Bible that is an uninhibited conversation put to music, between two people in love. It is also one that Jay Ferris began to excitedly expound on in the weeks before his surgery, first by email and then in person with myself and a few who were with him. It was a heavenly conversation that wasn’t finished before he went to be with The Lord. With profound honor for what he started, it will now be taken up again.
How easy will it be to stay on track? The Parable of Sex is dangerous territory when approached with a fleshly mind. It is largely just not discussed at all, and that because of religious repression and guilt. The safe and desirable thing to do is get to the point and stay there, and that is that everything, including physical intimacy, is about Christ and the Church, Ephesians 5:32. We need each other to help get to, and stay in this revelation, as there is a constant warfare against it. I feel bombarded in my own life all the time.
We are familiar with the warning of ‘leaving our first love,’ Rev. 2:4. This confirms what Jesus said would be a sign of the last days, “the love of most would grow cold,” Matthew 24:12. How can we keep this from happening to us? Jesus advised to, “Repent, and do the first works,” Rev.2:5. The question then remains, What are the things we do when we are first in love?
I look forward to discussing and living in the reality of these things in Christ, with you, as we begin to explore the riches of this book together.
