Hi, God’s word for me today is in Song of songs 1:5 which says, “Dark am I, yet lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon.”
So if you look at the heading for some of these verses you will see it will say “beloved” “lover” or “friends” so that is just that the beloved is talking, the lover is talking and the friends are talking, anyway the beloved is talking here and we can compare ourselves to her, because Jesus is our lover, and He loved us so much that He died for us, but we can also compare ourselves to her because we (in our sin) are dark, but Jesus makes us clean again, He loved (and loves) us so much that He actually died on a cross to make us clean, thank you Jesus.
So Jesus died on a cross for us, so that we would become light, He took away our darkness and our sin, and He gave us His lightness and His righteousness, at the cross He took everyone’s sin from every time on Him, and He payed off the penalty for us, even though He was (and is) the son of God (although He was (and is) God too, because Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are three in one), He died for us, thank you so much Jesus.
So even though Jesus was (and is) perfect and even though we were sinners that were as black as could be, He cleaned us up, He made us as pure as snow, if you’ve ever heard the saying “he (or she) is the black sheep of the family” well you could say that we were all the “black sheep of the family” but Jesus made us white, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus took away your darkness.
