A Short Excerpt From Upcoming Sermon

Meekness

The world looks down on the meek, but Christ said upon the mount of blessing. “Blessed are the meek.”

Perhaps the greatest leader that mankind has every witnessed besides Christ is Moses.  Numbers 12:3 describes Moses as very meek. Yet he led over a million people toward the promise land. Is the greatest leader of men to ever walk upon this earth and yet the Bible describes him as meek.

You see, meekness is an attitude of heart and mind and life that prepares the way for sanctification.  A “meek” spirit “is in the sight of God of great price.”  Peter puts it this way. “Rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” (I Peter 3:4)

Meekness toward God means that we accept His will and His dealing with us as good. That we submit to Him in all things, without hesitation.  A meek man has self under complete control.  Through self-exaltation our first parents lost the kingdom entrusted to them; through meekness it may be regained.

The prophet Micah put it this.  “He has shown you O man what is good and what does the LORD require of you but to do justly to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”

In the beatitude spoken by Christ, those that are meek will do what? Why of course, “they will inherit the earth.”  Therefore with meekness and with Love toward one another, always be ready to share the love Christ has shown to you to others.
