Kiss The Son

10 Dec
Psalm 2:12 says, “Kiss the son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all that put their trust in Him.”

The kiss in scripture is a symbol of various attitudes. In Luke 7:38 it is a sign of true worship. The poor woman who came into the house of Simon and stood behind Jesus did five things: She wept, she washed His feet with her tears, she wiped them with the hairs of her head, she anointed them with the ointment, and… she kissed His feet… The tears and kiss were a sign of true and holy worship. The kiss is also a token of forgiveness. In Luke 15:11-24 the prodigal came back home to his father, and after his confession, received a kiss of forgiveness. The Father kissed the son…

Two contrasting stories… in one, the woman kissed the Son… in the other, the Father kissed the son. How cool is that? We all have received that kiss of forgiveness at some point or another from the Father. But are we “kissing the Son”? Are we living with fear and reverence to the King? I pray that I am living my life so pleasing to Jesus that it’s as if I am kissing his feet in pure worship each and every day.

What will it be like when I finally meet my Savior face to face?

I hope to kiss the Son… in person.

Look for the song “Kiss The Son” on the new CD to be released early 2010
Until next time,
