Kiss of Love ------ WFW





















Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen 1 Peter 5:14

Reflection
These instructions from our God I believe goes much deeper than they appear on the surface. We are to greet one another in love, with a true kiss of love. The challenge for me is to define my kiss of love in ways which are visible and meaningful to the kingdom of God. Many thoughts invade my mind about ways to show God's love in the earth, but honestly many of them stay there, in my mine. This I believe is not the intention of our heavenly Father. He places desires in my heart and it is up to me to take steps to bring those thoughts to fruition. Viewing this wonderful picture and this powerful scripture causes me to stop and consider how I have handled this guidance from God. I must say I have fallen short. So today I begin to challenge myself to stop skimming the surface of God's instructions and to begin to dig deep and seek ways to greet others with a kiss of love which speaks highly of the God I confess to serve.

Prayer
Father God, Holy and Righteous God I ask that you will continually put Your instructions in my mind and write them in my heart. When I miss the opportunity to follow your instruction, please do not give up on me, do not cease giving me thy words. Though my thoughts can never be as high as Yours, please mold them until they reach a level pleasing to You. Father I want to share in the joy of giving, remembering faithful service is an offering unto Thee. Let me be faithful in showing love which is true and brings You glory. Father help me to move beyond praying for those in need, help me to make my prayer a real, touchable, visible kiss. Help me to see the needs of my Christian brothers and sisters but Lord I want to move beyond the comforts of the Church to the need of Your world that Your Kingdom will truly be a part of the earth. In Jesus Name and by His power I pray. Amen
