Kiss Me

Did you know that the Greek word proskuneo means to kiss (like a dog licking his master’s hand), to do reverence to, adore, etc.?  It originally carried with it the idea of subjects falling down to kiss the ground before a king or kiss their feet.

When I worship God I like to think of this.  He is definitely worthy.  There is a song by Sixpence None the Richer that I think of my God when I hear it.  Come on, bear with me and use a mature mind.  Nothing “sexual” about it.  Simply paying adoration and reverence to a God who is closer than a brother – a real friend AND a king.

Sixpence None The Richer – Kiss Me

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

[Chorus:]
Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map

I like to think of the “We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map” as me and Jesus and God the father’s map.  A journey through life.

I hope the reader doesn’t take offense by what I say here today.  It’s not about religion, but a relationship with The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit.  That’s what He wants.

Just something for you to ponder. 🙂
