{ Day 60 }

Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. —Psalm 2:12, NKJV

There is to be an intimate, affectionate, passionate dimension in our relationship with Jesus. Some churches emphasize awe and trembling, often leaving little room for rejoicing and affectionate worship. Others concentrate on rejoicing and blessing. Some of today's charismatic churches have focused on the authority of the believer and the privileges we have in Christ—to the exclusion of His awesome majesty and judgment. Still others are committed to affectionate intimacy with God with a passionate response of love toward Jesus. But God has fashioned the human spirit in such a way that we need all three dimensions—trembling, rejoicing, and kissing—in our relationship with Him.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, I have felt a trembling when I stand in Your presence, and I have abandoned my life to rejoicing in worship of such a great God. Now teach me to understand Your affectionate heart and to know the wonder of a loving, intimate relationship with You.

We need to ask the Holy Spirit to revive in our own
hearts all three dimensions of the grace of God.
