Righteousness & Peace Kiss

You cannot get much closer than a kiss.

When we are in right standing with God, that is, we know we are going to heaven, peace is close to us. It is as close as a kiss.

Psalm 85 10b says:

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 

This is so profound, yet so simple.

We do not become righteous on our own. Christ Jesus is our righteousness and our right standing with Him connects us intimately with peace.
