It was an unexpected but very welcome kiss. Author Max Lucado wrote of a friend who had just returned from Disneyworld. While there he and his family visited Cinderella’s castle. Suddenly all the kids rushed to one side-Cinderella had entered! But one boy remained on the other side alone. He longed to be with the other children but was physically challenged. Then the unthinkable happened. Cinderella crossed over to the boy, knelt and kissed his cheek. What a beautiful story. It reminds us of another story-of an unexpected kiss, when Jesus our Saviour bridged the gap between heaven and earth. He offered deliverance from our spiritually challenged state. The Psalmist described this astounding truth, speaking about the events at the cross of Calvary-“Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.” That kiss cost Jesus dearly because “By His wounds we were healed.” That heavenly kiss is available to us all.!
