Beloved, a tender term, reserved for an intimate relationship, such as with a husband and wife. The word carries the idea of a sweet and special role that noone else can share. It carries the idea of a young couple honeymooning, where they are so captivated with each other that nothing else matters or is noticed.
Beloved, an endearing term that is used of those who are believers, who have surrendered their lives to their Savior, Jesus Christ. We forget often how much we are loved, pursued, desired and chosen. We were bought with a price, the randsom of heaven was paid to free us from the snaggles of sin. Freeing us to be with our beloved forever more.
