Jesus, the Rose of Sharon!

“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.” (Song of Solomon 2:1-2) “Who can this be but Jesus, in whose person the rose and lily are combined? He paints His Church as a lone lily growing amidst a wilderness of thorns, among them, but not of them; her beauties being all the more conspicuous by contrast.” (C. H. Spurgeon) So then, “You will never find Jesus so precious as when the world is one vast howling wilderness. Then, He is like a rose blooming in the midst of the desolation, a rock rising above the storm!” (R. M. McCheyne)
