Song of Songs 1:2-3
“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you!”
-These verses might sound like those found in soup operas or love stories; as king Solomon displays his prowess in love matters. He was well known for applying sweet fragrances that attracted young women to him & probably also because of his wisdom, power & wealth. In Proverbs 7:8-27 we find the adulterous woman who displays a seductive approach in her moral conduct; for when her husband went away probably to work; she desperately kisses another man & lures Him into her bed. Her problem was obviously not lack of money for her husband carried a bag full of it (Prov 7:20) but the fallen nature man to satisfy his/her sexual desires. King Solomon attempted to satisfy his sexual needs by marrying 700 wives & 300 concubines but this was all vanity. It is therefore not humanly possible to satisfy ones sexual desires but only through the grace of God Who gives us freely the fruit of self control; that we may live in holiness through abstinence until marriage & holding fast faithfulness in marriage. We are also called to flee from sexual immorality & all uncleanliness for our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit Who is in us (1 Cor 6:18-20). Christ has freely poured out His love which attracts us to Him like sweet fragrance; so that we may be satisfied by Him alone.
You have called us Lord to honor You with our bodies, give us the fruit of self control & grace to flee from sexual immorality & all uncleanliness. Forgive us Jesus for the many times we have engaged in sexual immorality & wash us by Your precious blood. Be with all those who find bread through the business of prostitution & direct them in other more productive areas of the economy. Shepherd all those who are involved in lesbiansm, gayism & other such sexual relationships Father that they may find You. Heal all our wounds Jesus & strengthen us when we are weak so that we may always find hope through Your everlasting love. Help all the married couples Lord to share love in the family & serve as a good example to many. Direct us Father to focus on things which are more pleasing to You so that we may bear much fruit. You satisfy us Jesus with Your love, we thank You & praise Your name forever. Amen
