12. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Kiss the Son
Psalm 2, verse 12 gives us both a warning and a blessing. We are warned to kiss the Son and we are reminded of the blessings we receive by putting our trust in the Lord.
Why does the Psalmist say, Kiss the Son? It seems a rather strange way to tell us to love and serve Christ, does it not? Think of the state of Israel when this Psalm was written. The heathen nations surrounding Israel worshiped idols, often falling down before the idol, kissing its feet.
Yet, what could that idol do? Not a thing! The heathen put their trust in their man-made idols.
We do not do the same thing today, do we? Of course we do--anything we put before the Lord Jesus Christ is an idol. What idols do people kiss in our day? Money, power, and popularity or fame, are just a few.
Let us, by the grace of God, fall before our God, and kiss the Son. May our hearts, our lives, and our very souls be focused on our service for Him. He has given so much, and we are asked to give so little in return.
What an amazing God we have!
God Bless You,
