Frustration or Fulfillment Part 1a

December 28, 2020

Those of you who are married, recall for a moment the days leading up to your wedding and then that special day itself. The anticipation, the overwhelming joy and excitement!  The Lord thought it all up.  He gave us marriage to be enjoyed and as a portrait of His relationship with His bride the church.   Pastor Jeff talks about this and more as he takes us to the Song of Solomon.

What is Christmas really all about?  Just a chance to get together with family and exchange a few gifs?  Actually no.  It’s all about a Savior who has come.  But He was born to die.  And so today we’re going to take some time out to celebrate and remember this through communion.

Whether it’s a marriage or a friendship… over time that relationship that was once strong can deteriorate.  The same can happen in our relationship with God.  How can we stay close to the Lord, or get back to where we should be?  That’s what we’re about to uncover in part 2 of pastor Jeff’s message, “First Love Relationship!”

As we’re approaching a new year, it’s not a bad idea to take inventory of our lives, and see where we’re at spiritually!  Maybe some adjustments need to be made.  Much like taking your car to a mechanic for a tune up!  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll have that opportunity as we dig deeper into the Song of Solomon.

Those of you who have swam in the ocean, know how easy it is to drift, and not even realize it’s happening. You look back to the shore and your beach towel and belongings are out of sight!   The same thing can happen to us spiritually!  If that’s you, we’ll show you how to get back to your first love relationship with Jesus today on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff is in the Song of Solomon chapter two describing the sort of relationship God desires to have with us.

Christmas is just a week away!  And it’s a good time to reflect on why Jesus came!  Today on Sound Doctrine we find the answer to that question is that we would have a love relationship with Him!  We’ll be in the Song of Solomon chapter two which encourages us to have a strong relationship with Christ.  And if we’ve drifted a bit, to get back to our first love.

Turn on the radio to a music station today, and it’s likely you’ll hear quite a few songs with the theme of love.  Song writers often focus on love!  You might say the Song of Solomon is a fantastic love song… a number one hit!   And it’s receiving our time and attention on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson will be covering the latter portion of chapter one, which is all about our love relationship with God.

Are you into those Hallmark Christmas shows?   They often feature some sort of feel good love relationship story.  Today on Sound Doctrine, we’ve got an even better one for you!  It’s featured in the Song of Solomon. Hear all about our love relationship with God, as you join us in Song of Solomon chapter one.

Pastor Jeff Johnson is in the early stages of a new series in the Song of Solomon.  In the first few verses of chapter one the Shulamite woman is confessing her love to Solomon.  She’s basically saying there’s nothing like it, and it goes way beyond physical attraction to the inner character.  Pastor Jeff will relate this to God’s love for us!  Nothing can compare to the Lord’s love for each of us and what a timely reminder with Christmas on the horizon.

Do you enjoy a good love story or love song?  Most Americans do.   But much of the time the picture that we’re given of love and romance in the world is diametrically opposed to what we find in Scripture.  Today on Sound Doctrine we begin a series of studies based on the Song of Solomon.  Now if you want an accurate picture of love and romance, that’s the book to turn to!  It emphasizes how much God really loves us.
