{ Day 61 }

by | Mar 1, 2012 | Prayer & Devotion

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” —Matthew 21:10-11

How about you? Maybe you have only seen a holy God who judges rebellion, and so you seek to walk in faithfulness as you fear God. You understand what it means to tremble. Do you rejoice in the benefits that are yours in Christ? Perhaps you do not experience much intimacy with God. The thought of kissing Christ makes you uncomfortable. It should, because David’s call to kiss the Son is symbolic language that was not meant to be interpreted literal kissing. It refers to receiving God’s love and then responding back to Him with wholehearted love.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Lord, I admit that the idea of “kissing Christ” is hard for me to comprehend. But show me the joy of crawling up into Your lap, throwing my arms around Your neck, and kissing Your holy face.

The Lord wants to intertwine these three
dimensions in you. He wants to bring
them forth by His Holy Spirit.
