Song of Solomon 2:15May 30 Morning
Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that ruin vineyards. Our vineyards are blooming.
A little thorn may cause much suffering. A little cloud may hide the sun. Little foxes spoil the vines and little sins do mischief to the tender heart. Little sins burrow into the soul and make it so full of that which is hateful to Christ, that he can not have comfortable fellowship and communion with us. A great sin cannot destroy a Christian, but a little sin can make him miserable. Jesus will not walk with his people unless they stop every known sin. He says, "If you keep my laws, you will be ever in my love, even as I have kept my Father's laws, and am ever in his love." (John 15:10) Some Christians very seldom enjoy their Savior's presence. How can this be? Surely it must be a sorrow for a child to be separated from his father. If you are a child of God, how can you be satisfied to go without seeing your Father's face? If you're the bride of Christ, you can't be content without his company! If you are in sin, you've fallen into a sad state, for a pure spouse of Christ will mourn like a dove without her mate, when he has left her. Ask the question, what has driven Christ from you? He hides his face behind the wall of your sins. That wall may be built up of little pebbles, as easily as of great stones. The sea is made of drops, the rocks are made of grains and the sea which divides you from Christ may be filled with the drops of all your little sins and the rock which has almost wrecked your ship, may have been made by the daily workings of your little sins. If you would live with Christ, walk with Christ, see Christ and have fellowship with Christ, take heed of "the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes." Jesus invites you to go with him and remove your sin. He will surely, like Samson, capture the foxes easily. Go with him to the hunting.
