Just A Kiss: a Reflection on Psalm 86, Genesis 21:1-21, Hebrews 11:13-22 and John 6:41-51

Wow, Lady Antebellum hits it squarely on point in “Just A Kiss.” A couple fighting the feelings and caught up in the moment decides for just a kiss. A lyric of truth in a culture hell bent on an untruthful view of sexuality. The psalmist cries out to the LORD to teach him the LORD’S way. Sarah did conceive; the LORD was faithful to his promise. And God is always faithful. We are the ones who mess it up. I praise God for the many witnesses who were faithful yet died without receiving the promises of God. With the privilege of hindsight, I am grateful to anticipate brokenness let alone experience it. Praise God for the community of faithful witnesses who have gone before me. And I can reach out to the bread of life. I can continue to be faithful and receive God’s promises. I am humbled. God, give me courage to take discipleship in the correct order. Help me avoid being caught up in the moment and miss the bigger picture. Discipleship cannot be rushed. To take slow and measured steps is so important.

Scripture texts are taken from the two-year daily lectionary cycle which follows the liturgical calendar and begins on the First Sunday of Advent.
