“Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.” (Song of Solomon 4:7).
The blessed Holy Spirit who possesses the consecrated heart of our life is intensely concerned for our highest life and watches us with a sensitive, and even a jealous love. Very beautiful is the true translation of that ordinary passage of Paul to the church at Corinth, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2
The heart of the Holy Ghost is intensely concerned in preserving us from every stain and blemish and bringing us into the very highest possibilities of the will of God. The place where God longs for us to be with Him.
The Heavenly Bridegroom would have His Church not only free from every spot, but also from “every wrinkle, or any such thing.” The spot is the mark of sin, but the wrinkle is the sign of weakness, age, and decay, and He wants no such defacing touch upon the holy features of His Beloved; and so the Holy Ghost, who is the Executor of His will, and the Divine Messenger whom He sends to call, separate, and bring home His Bride, is jealously concerned in fulfilling in us all the Master’s will.
Lord, take from me every blemish and mark of weakness and decay and make me Thy spotless Bride. This should be the prayer of every child of God. We do know that no spot or wrinkle will make its way into the Kingdom of God.
If we are in love with our Father in heaven we have to be living a life that is spotless and without any form of wrinkle. My dear friends, fellow readers, brothers and sisters let us serve the Lord with a jealous heart as He is jealous over us with godly jealousy. May Almighty God keep us in His perfect love.
