Love With A Holy Kiss
Behold the depth of love after the Good Book points out the need for hard work?
Paul speaks of hard work the blessed freedom of being able to give because one hates and despises money then we see the depth of love God is able to work for they all kneel down, pray then weep, embrace and kiss the command of a holy kiss.
In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” When he had said this, he knelt down with all of them and prayed. They all wept as they embraced him and kissed him. (Acts 20:35-37)
When was the last time you saw such a greeting of love in a Christian Church?
A command of love for the heart of Christians whose spirits are set on fire in love for God and His holy saints.
A command that is repeated 5 times.
And you call yourself an obedient Christian church.

Do not attempt to obey the commands for a holy kiss because it is a holy kiss.
There is much cleaning up God must do before a holy kiss can be freely and safely expressed among a group of believers.
We are told that love builds up and this kind of love worked and willed by the Living God requires some hard work sufferings against sin in a person’s life.
We know that we all possess knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. (1 Corinthians 8:1)
