Below is an open book spread of the first two pages of the "Song of Songs". I created the pages using feminine colors to emphasize this book of love. Some scholars see the book as a love story between a man and a woman and others see it as a love story of God for us. I think it can be both!
If you interpret the book as the love relationship between Jesus and His people, this verse is an example of how believers must search for God.
Just as a groom sees impeccable beauty in his bride, so is there impeccable beauty in Jesus Christ. In other Bible versions this verse reads that the bride has no "spot" or no "flaw". The word for "spot" is used eighteen times in the Old Testament referring to the "perfect" animal sacrifices required to atone for sins. Jesus then became our "perfect", "flawless", "spotless", "beautiful in every way" sacrifice.
Here the bride in the story is asking for a permanent commitment from the groom, likewise Jesus asks us to let Him come in to our hearts.
I was so excited to start the book of Isaiah because it is a great time in history to study this book. Isaiah is prophetic book which has both near fulfillment and far fulfillment prophecies. It strengthens my faith to see the prophecies in the book of Isaiah that have already been fulfilled to a T and it's exciting to see what God has yet to do!
This is the one page I had time to do for myself this month: just in time for Christmas. To create this page I painted the background purple first, then I hand wrote the scripture with a black marker. The images are stamps that I stamped on a separate piece of card stock, colored in, then adhered to the page.
