Christ, the Kiss

The song (Psalm 85) about the past continues with a promise to listen in the future.  And this might be a risky promise, a dangerous one to make, depending on the character of the God who is hearing the promise.

Is God holy or loving?  Righteous or graceful?

Both.

There is no contradiction, no confusion.  There is, instead, this beautiful image of union:

Love and faithfulness meet together;
    righteousness and peace kiss each other (vs. 10).

Come, Lord Jesus.
