Sermon Notes:

Words contain astonishing power to form reality. You can see this exemplified in the lives of children. Years ago, a supervisor in the marriage and family therapy program in which I was engaged made a statement to me along these lines: “The way in which parents speak to their children becomes formative in the future of those children.” I believe that today even more strongly than I did then. But I would add to it this reality: The way in which spouses speak to each other becomes formative in the future of their marriage. In fact, I would go so far as to suggest that if the only thing a couple changed was their way of speaking to each other, the health of their marriage would noticeably improve. In our focus on the Song of Songs, today we turn to how the two people in this ancient love song speak to and of each other. One of the things you quickly notice as you read the Song is that it is filled with loving imagery, flowery language, and tender terms of endearment shared between these two love birds. For example, to her he speaks and says: How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh how beautiful! Your eyes are doves. (Song of Songs 1:15, TNIV). How long has it been since you spoke to your beloved in such fashion?! I suppose we could respond to the Song in two or three different ways, depending on the relationships in our lives. First, we could all learn to speak more graciously and kindly to anyone in our lives, regardless of the kind of relationship we share with them. Second, if we have a beloved in our lives, we could practice using new and thoughtful endearments when we speak to them! And third, if that second one is too much, maybe it’s time to sit down and write a good old-fashioned love letter to our beloved. Sometimes it’s easier to put such words on paper. But however we respond, let us all learn and remember this simple lesson: words have astonishing power to form reality. Use yours wisely and lovingly. Randy Roberts, senior pastor
