Kisses Better Than Wine

on August 7, 2012

“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.” Song of Songs 1:2

Let him kiss me…love is better than wine. Very romantic words here in this poetic passage of scripture. There are a lot of people who would be shocked to know that the Bible had such romantic language in parts. I think a lot of unbelievers wrongfully assume that Christians must not be very sensual or into romance as the world because we see pre-marital sex, adultery and pornography as sins that we refrain from. Their big mistake is thinking that the most fun forms of sexuality come hand in hand with perversion, immorality and self-destructive lusts of the flesh. I would argue that the most beautiful, free, satisfying and completely blissful sexual experiences are those had within the covenant of marriage, between a husband and a wife who know that their God is pleased with their union.

Let him kiss me… There is much to be said for a kiss and there are various forms of kissing too. 1 Corinthians 16:20 speaks of a “holy kiss” and says, “All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.” So this is not a romantic kiss but one that is brotherly or sisterly in nature. Today most people shy away from friendly, cheek-kissing and that’s fine. Today so much of what once was good and holy is now perverted, which has ruined it for the rest of us.

Throughout scripture we see father’s kissing their sons. We see friends kissing each other as a sign of allegiance. We have women kissing the feet of Jesus as a form of worship and adoration. We also see the kiss of betrayal from Judas in the garden. So kissing can mean many things and have many purposes, but  this kiss in the Song of Songs is most definitely a romantic, firework kind of a kiss between a man and a woman very much in love.

Let him kiss me…I love how she says that. She is encouraging the kisses from her man. She wants his closeness and affections because his love is better than sweet tasting wine to her. Ladies, a kiss can go a long way with our husbands. Sometimes, at the end of a long day, when the kids have been running around like lunatics, the house is still a mess after hours of cleaning, and dinner is overcooked and under-appreciated, the last thing on our minds is giving our husband kisses and affection. The funny thing is that a kiss can be so redeeming, so needful and so healing on these days. It fills up our hearts and reminds us we are loved. We may have failed at everything else that day, but we can sure make that kiss count!

So let us be abundant in the affections we show our husbands. Let him kiss me for his love is better than wine, chocolate, Staburcks…yes even Starbucks!
