Song of Songs 2:3-4 (KJV) (3) As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. (4) He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
From these verses, we see four things a Christian is given when Christ is accepted into one’s life. 1. “I sat down”: in union with Him, and there is rest, 2. “With great delight” there is joy. 3. “In His shadow: there is shelter from the heat. 4. “His fruit was sweet to my taste”: in Christ there is plenty to sustain us. One day we will be brought to the great banquet, which is the marriage supper of the Lamb.
(Read Isaiah 25:4)
