For many people, gentleness is equated with weakness. We struggle with not wanting to be seen as “weak” in life – fearful of being taken advantage of. Our pride pushes us to desire to be “strong” in life. One of the most difficult character traits to comprehend in life is the power of the gentleness of Christ for our lives. We will be reminded this morning Jesus does not need to fight the world – He created it and holds it in His hand. Our promise from God this morning is we can lay aside all the bravado in life and live with the same passionate, gentleness of Jesus, confident there is no power in life that can stand against Jesus, and of our eternal inheritance through our faith in Him.
