Momentous Kisses

First kisses, funny kisses, romantic  kisses, sweet kisses, goodbye kisses....think of the many  kinds of kisses you have given and received.

Early in Matthew 26 we encounter a woman with a jar of costly perfume. She pours it over Jesus' head. Other gospels add details (or maybe tell a second account - still researching), adding in that she also poured it the perfume on his feet while kissing Him. (Matt 26:6-13; Mk 14:3; Lk 7:37; Jn 12:2) In ancient days priests and kings were anointed with a specific fragrance to announce and prepare for their service. She anoints Jesus, her priest and king. That fragrance would have lingered.

A kiss of intimate worship!

Immediately Judas went to Jesus and said, "Hail, Rabbi!" and kissed him. And Jesus said to him, Friend, do what you have come for. Matthew 26:49-50a

A kiss of betrayal.

Two kisses...which  am I offering Jesus today?

Based on a devotional Renee Beyea gave at PWOC - it lingered and now it's captured for our family.
