Sermons in Song of Solomon are likely to discuss the worldly wisdom of King Solomon. This prolific writer and great leader was also responsible for the Book of Proverbs, which is an exhortation to embrace wisdom, and offers advice on everything from business to raising children. Song of Solomon is written like a musical piece, or poem, in which the writer himself, his beloved, and a chorus of their friends all participate.

Scripture for Sermons in Song of Solomon

Song of Solomon 8:6 reads, "Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, jealousy unyielding as the grave." This is an ideal of love that can be discussed as a Christian ideal for a married couple. In modern times when divorce is so prevalent, a reminder of the kind of love you ought to wait for may be timely and encourage people not to get into marriages they will not continue to feel strongly about over time.

Many people are surprised when they discover just how worldly Song of Solomon is. There are a number of passages in Song of Solomon that would be likely to earn a PG-13 rating in a movie, if not an R. Sermons in Song of Solomon might be necessary to explain to people why this material would be included in the Bible at all.

Sermons in Song of Solomon might also expand upon this theme and discuss other writers who have produced material that might be shocking to some, despite its overtly Christian content. The poet John Dunne, in particular, is known for work which makes God seems like a very vital, physical element in his life, and uses imagery that seems very physical and even sexual to talk about the feeling of wanting to be ever closer to God. The potential dual interpretation of Song of Solomon is a subject of much secular and sacred research; so if you want to find out more, you should be able to find some great sites on the Internet.
