God's Love Language (Part 3)
Haha! Since Jesus went back to heaven, we can't touch God and He doesn't touch us. So you may be thinking here is one way God doesn't express or receive love -- physical touch. And we certainly have to dig a bit harder into the Scriptures to see how God physically touches our lives. But how we touch our Lord is simple. Matthew 25 is a poetic passage about how our interactions with others links us to Christ. When we hug our spouse when they don't deserve it or kiss our children (even though they are being little pills today) or lay a comforting hand on those who simply need to know someone cares -- we touch Christ.
In return, our Savior touches us the same way. When our friend gives us a hug (even though we are being a little pill today) -- that's God. Or our kids kisses us goodbye, even though we just yelled at them for something they didn't do -- God is there. And when our spouse rubs our back even though we just took last cup of coffee -- our Lord is reaching out to touch us using human hands.
