Kiss the Son

"Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him." Psalm 2:12

There is not much that is more intimate than a kiss. Most people would never dream of kissing their enemies and few today would kiss their friends. In today's society, we only kiss those that we are incredibly close to, typically your spouse, your children and possibly your family.

The Psalmist encourages people here to kiss the Son. The call is a call of intimacy. It's a call to dive into a deep relationship with the Creator of the universe. There is no greater relationship to enter into than a relationship with the Savior. His kiss is sweet. He draws us close and there is a safety there that cannot be found elsewhere.

The warning here though is stark. If you refuse that intimacy with the King, he will get angry and you will perish. The choice is stark. Do you want to anger the one who created you? Or do you want to draw close and experience an intimacy like no other? Choose wisely because his wrath is quickly kindled.

The Psalmist then gives us one final exhortation in this song, he says there is a blessing for those that take refuge in the Son. For the Christian, the greatest blessing in life is to take refuge in the Son. He is our strong tower. He is our mighty God. There is no one stronger or safer than He. To those that put their trust in Him, He will never let them down.

Prayer - Lord, we answer your call to an intimate relationship with you. Our desire is to see your face and be in your presence. Help us to put our total trust in you. We want to enjoy the blessing of following you. Thank you for beckoning us to a deeper relationship. Amen.
