We never take time to understand why words are so meaningful in our lives especially when we look at the scripture. I want us to take a look at three words in scripture and see the value of them for our lives as the bride of Christ. In looking at the scripture in the book of Solomon the Songs of Solomon we see the beauty of a bride and her relationship to her husband and his relationship to his bride. There is in this book an example of the relationship in how the Lord Jesus looks at the Church and His bride. It is sad many times that He sees us through His eyes of Love and we don’t look at Him in the same manor with the same eyes of love.

BODY OF TEXT:
I have given you a lot of scripture that will encourage and help us to understand how much God loves us. The first word is in Hebrew Ani Lo from the Songs of Solomon and it refers to a bride the word literally means I am to Him or I am His. It is a self-giving or giving of ones-self to someone. We choose to give ourselves to the Lord at salvation. It is saying that it is an overwhelming joy full of love to give her-self to GOD. This is how God wants us to live our lives for Him every-day a life full of joy in Him. I will give you a practical example of this kind of relationship that you have with your spouse. When you first met it was butter flies and rainbows. And hopefully you both continue to get to know each other as the years go by and appreciate one another. The man loves his bride and the bride loves her husband each giving of themselves for the better of the other. Love is self-sacrifice it is not I get my way and you get yours. This is also an example of the church no one is above another Romans 14:7-8 for not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; 8 for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord: therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
So ultimately we are here on this earth to have a relationship with our heavenly Father. Just as we are the bride of Christ at salvation we are the sons and daughters of the Father we will sometimes speak to the Father as Abba or use the term daddy which is in correct. Jesus was speaking Aramaic Language among the Jews “Abba” means “my father” which was more useful for prayer than simply “father”. This occurs three times in the New testament, Mark 14:36, Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6.
The second is a Greek word ‘Sunergos’ and it means to act or work together. It comes from the word ‘Ergos,’ to work, to act, or to do. And sun means with or together. In the original language the words fellow workers are just one word – Sunergos.
Many are trying to live to the high standards of God and no one can reach them it is impossible to do. The only one who can meet the Standards of God is God. The only way we can is with letting Him live through us. It then becomes Him living His life through us. We now become His fellow workers “Sunergos”. It is from the word ‘sunergos’ that we get the word synergy. That’s the energy of salvation, the energy of God, and the energy of you flowing together as one …one energy, one motion, one life.
The Third word is ROSH PINAH (Hebrew lit. Cornerstone) is a Prophecy in Psalms 118:22-23 it is the song of Passover: the stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner stone. 23 this is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 this is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Jesus is the Cornerstone of all that is written in the 66 books of the bible that are the KINGS SIGNANT RING stamped for all eternity and for the hearts of man for guidance and direction for living.
