Sept 4 – History’s Greatest Kiss

According to Guiness World Records, the world’s longest kiss lasted 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds and was achieved by Ekkachai Tiranarat and Laksana Tiranarat (both from Thailand) in Pattaya, Thailand, on 12-14 February 2013. But as astonishing a feat as that, it is not history’s greatest kiss. The Bible tells us in the Psalms , “righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” That “kiss” took place when Christ, the Prince of Peace died on Calvary’s Cross and paid the price to make sinners righteous in God’s eyes. It brought together the truth of God about our sinful condition and the mercy of God. Righteousness and peace, figuratively speaking, kissed each other. The world’s longest kiss no doubt had a major affect on those who kissed. But when the kiss of God took place on the Cross, the whole world felt its affects. If we respond and receive Christ into our lives, it will have an eternal affect on us.
