Soul!  Christ is near to you in ties of relationship.  Christ is dear to you in bonds of marriage union, and you are dear to Him.  Behold, He grasps both of your hands with both His own and says, “My sister, My spouse.”  Mark the two sacred holdfasts by which your Lord gets such a double hold of you that He neither can nor will ever let you go.  Be not, O beloved, slow to return the hallowed flame of His love. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Song of Solomon 4.12.
