Beloved Names of God...series

The Rose of Sharon

 

I am the rose of Sharon.
Song of Solomon 2:1

 

  • Name of God the Son
  •  
  • The description "the rose of Sharon" appears once in the KJV.
  •  
  • In biblical times, the Plain of Sharon(to which the name refers) was known for its beauty and majesty. A popular garden variety of hibiscus borrows its name from this passage.
  •  
  • Though the context of Song of Solomon 2:1 doesn't imply a literal connection to Jesus, many biblical scholars agree that it is a symbolic reference to Jesus' undying and perfect devotion to His children. The loving relationship He desires to establish with us all is revealed through the exchange between Solomon and the Shulamite woman.
Child of God, there is no mood of your life where Jesus fails to fit your need, to brighten as a brilliant rose your life. In joy or sorrow, sunshine or shadow, day or night, HE blooms for you. Behold Him, then, today, not only on the cross for you, not only on the throne, but near you, close beside your path, the rose of Sharon.
