“You have captured my heart, my treasure, my bride. You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes, with a single jewel of your necklace ” – Song of songs 4:9.

Christ came for you because you are his treasure. He came for you because you have infinite value to him.

He calls out the beauty and value in you.

God reached down into the dust he created and breathed into it his life. The very glory of God, the fullness of his goodness entered into creating, in the body of the first man.

You were created from the intimacy of God, from a perfect relationship. You were created as a reflection of perfect love and now in Christ you have been made a New Creation.

The journey of the heart is a discovery of who we already are in our new creation life. Christ has filled us with his fullness inside our spirit and we are now alive to Christ and dead to our old nature.

We were created beautiful by God. Now in Christ we have been restored to our perfect, innocent nature. As Paul says in Ephesians 4:21 “You are holy and righteous in Christ.”

You have captured God’s heart. You are his delight. Your eyes are alive with the glory of Christ placed in you.

You have made God a hostage of love for you. He pursues you, he runs after you and he embraces you into his perfect union with you.

You are his delight and he will never let you go.
