Song of Solomon 8:6 – “Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire, which
have a most vehement flame.
The love of Christ is a seal to those that believe. This love that is strong as death not only seals our soul but His seal is on our arm as a sign to others we are His. This story is replicated in the New Testament where the church is called the light of the world and the salt and Paul expressed to the Ephesian brethren the seal of the Holy Spirit that kept them till the day redemption. Based upon this love, our forefathers in the faith faced death by drowning and fire. They faced many privations and destructions that we only read about today. How strong is our love when compared to the love of God in sending His only begotten Son to die in our stead?
