Image result for meekness is not weakness

Grace is a gift. God gives me grace when I am humble. There is no peace if I am proud and haughty. Humility is the name of the game. Jesus challenges me to be humble. I have some good news.

Jesus wants me to inherit the earth. That was the original plan. King Jesus has restored it for all of us who follow Him.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Matthew 11:29

God’s promises to the meek is good news! Jesus is clear that I will be more than happy if I am meek and gentle. I will in fact inherit the earth according to the “Jesus Manifesto” (Matthew 5 – 7).

According to the dictionary, to be meek means you are “showing patience and humility, gentleness … easily imposed upon, submissive”. The meek one doesn’t throw fits or fly off the handle under pressure. A good synonym is “gentle”. A meek person is under control.

Jesus challenges me to learn from Him. Jesus is gentle. Jesus is humble. Jesus shows me how to have compassion and love. I am to cloth myself in humility and be gentle with others. That is the kind of love that is the mission Jesus has for me. I have to let my pride go.

The end game of humility is justice. That is The Way of Jesus. When I am humble, I am glad. I feel good about the great things God is doing. It isn’t about me. It is all about my Master Jesus.
