Preached by Rev. D. Macfarlane on Sabbath, 28th April, 1918.
“Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy
name is as ointment poured forth;
therefore do the virgins love thee” – Song
of Solomon 1:3.
This book of the Song of Solomon is concerning Christ and His Church.
Sometimes we find Christ speaking to His Church or of her. At other
times the Church speaks to Him or of Him. In our text it is the
Church that speaks, and she speaks to Himself indicating her nearness
to Him. In speaking of what she says we have to notice four things: –
I. – The name of Christ.
II. – His name compared to ointment.
III. – His name compared to ointment poured forth; and
IV. – The effect all this has on His people.
