The First True Love’s Kiss

Happy Wednesday!

All the ancient prophets promised us a great Prince. One by one, they stretched out their surrendered arms and pointed their daring fingers deep into their paled horizons to a day they described as “the fullness of time,” when God would come to us as a Prince. Line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there a little, the prophets meticulously depicted how the mightiest One of all would kneel before us, and in one unsurpassable act of humility—with the greatest kiss of all time—He would bring us back to life!

Just as predicted, that moment opened like the blossoming of a rare flower. Every living thing from first creation to last infinity pulsed in chorus with that central act of Love! It was 2,000 years ago when the Prince made His move. He walked away from all the splendors of His highest Heaven. He braved His way down into the decrepit regions of this dying earth, cloaked Himself with perfect humility, and lived the necessary sinless life. The Prince suffered for His princess, paying her ransom—His life for hers. All by Himself, He absorbed the curse of her fallen nature. He gave a love without bounds—it transcended time. He is the Prince who rescued His princess and every (willing) hopeless person before Him, with Him, and after Him—with a first true love’s kiss!

I’ve been thinking about God’s love this morning. So thankful that my heart opened to this love 21 years ago. Where would I be in this world without Him?
