A Holy Kiss: Show Affection To The Community Of Believers In Christ

holy kiss

1 Thessalonians 5:26
26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.

Romans 16:16
16 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ send you greetings.

2 Corinthians 13:12
12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.

A holy kiss in Greek means to show with other genuine believers in Jesus who are set apart for God’s good work a warm affection, for we share a common bond. See Strong’s Greek 40-Holy & 5370-Kiss

The bond that binds all the saints is the Holy Spirit living inside of us. 

Sometimes is hard to tell who truly belongs to God’s family. We have to be very careful as Satan with the aid of demons plants his children next to God’s children for deception.

Matthew 13:24-25, 36-39

24 He presented another parable to them: “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while people were sleeping, his enemy came, sowed weeds among the wheat, and left.

Jesus’ interpretation of the wheat [genuine believers] and the weeds [false believers]

36 Then He dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached Him and said, “Explain the parable of the weeds in the field to us.”
37 He replied: “The One who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 38 the field is the world; and the good seed—these are the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

We have to love the community of believers, but at the same time be very vigilant in detecting the fake ones. Remember, if you belong to Jesus Christ, you are a target and a demon or demons have been assigned to you. Their purpose is to stop you from bringing people to Jesus at all cost. 

Love and defend the Word of God for we are living in unparallel times when the truth is thrown out of one’s house and “do what is right in your own eyes” is its replacement.
