In fact, it says, “The word is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach. Romans 10:8
I found this in my draft folder. I’m not sure if I blogged it way back in 2015, but thought it worthy of posting, even if for a second time.
He kisses and embraces his dear bride with His word, which is the kiss of His lips. -Martin Luther
KISS OF FREEDOM
Kiss the Son. Kiss the Star.
Kiss the ancient gates and bars.
Kiss the Father. Kiss the Glory.
Kiss the One and Only Holy!
Kiss the beard, wise and white,
Seated right above the heights.
Kiss the man made flesh when came down.
Blood and sweat poured from His pierced crown.
Kiss the Son lest He be angry.
Kiss him quick and do not tarry.
Kiss the Unseen, embrace Its cause.
Kiss Perfection despite your flaws.
Kiss the Son who willingly
Kissed of death to set you free.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Psalm 2:12
Jesus, Only because of grace can we think to kiss You by faith. You have kissed us and kissed us and kissed us again despite our sin and rebellion. You will continue to kiss us …Your dear children…into eternity, loved and saved by the Father. In your name, most Holy Groom. Amen
