A Holy Kiss

Night after night I watch all the news shows and their coverage of what's going on in various cities. Rioting, unrest, people yelling at each other, people looting stores as if that somehow makes up for some perceived wrong done against someone. Lawless, helpless, hopeless. Shootings, beating, abductions, you name the crime. What is going on in our world today.

In my youth leader days I often asked teens who were complaining about something, "So, what are you going to do about it." I am not above taking my own advice. So . . . I have done something about it.

Jesus was all about love and so should we be. There isn't a single situation on the nightly news that couldn't be solved or prevented with love. I'd like you to read a few verses from the Bible. What do you think God was trying to tell us?

Romans 16:16 - "Greet one another with a holy kiss."

1 Corinthians 16:20 - "Greet one another with a holy kiss."

2 Corinthians 13:12 - "Greet one another with a holy kiss."

1 Thessalonians 5:26 - "Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss."

He was trying to tell us that we should always love those we meet, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ. We need to take this message to everyone we meet.

Now, I am not suggesting that we walk up to a total stranger and kiss them on the lips. But I AM suggesting we greet everyone with a smile, a handshake, a hug and yes, perhaps even a kiss on the cheek. What the world needs now is love, sweet love. Almost sounds like a song, doesn't it.
Love is a rare thing these days.

I have made a Facebook page called "A Holy Kiss." I would like you to go there and "like" it. I also would like you to "share" it and help spread the word about how we should be greeting each other . . . with love.

A Holy Kiss

This world could be an amazing place to live if it wasn't for all the violence and hatred we've been seeing on TV. God has the answer. He's been offering it to us for thousands of years! When are we going to listen?

When I was in high school there was a song that played on the radio. It was a song about the violence that we were experiencing in our society in the late 60's. The answer that was being offering in that song was "love." That's is what this world needs more of these days.

So, what are you going to do about it?
