Meekness

Humility is the correct way to come into God’s presence.

Someone who knows Jesus and follows Him will be growing in meekness. It may seem counterintuitive, but Jesus’ promise stands — a meek person will be happy or blessed. Living in humility and being willing to forego one’s rights for the benefit of someone else models the attitude of Jesus the Messiah.

Meekness also helps us to more effectively share the good news message with others. Striving for power and prestige is not the path to blessedness. Meekness is.

Psalm 95:6 says, “Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.” Bowing and kneeling have long been associated with worship and reverence

In fact, the Hebrew word for “worship” actually means “bow down.” The physical act of bowing should always reflect in our spiritual attitude as we address God. Indeed, Jesus teaches us in the Jesus Manifesto,  “Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name.”

  • Psalm 40:17 — 17 Since I am afflicted and needy, Let the Master be mindful of me. You are my help and my deliverer; Do not delay, O my God.
  • Psalm 70:5 — 5 But I am afflicted and needy; Hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O Master, do not delay.
