Sermon Review III: Sermon on the Mount CD3: Blessed are the Meek

My third sermon review. Whoa, my holiday is pretty fruitful.

Blessed are the meek. Meekness here means gentleness, humility and being considerate. In the Bible, Moses and Lord Jesus stood out in the area of meekness. Meekness is not lack of personality or lack of opinion. It is not being naïve or weak either. It is not easy to have the attitude of humility. Humility is not the denial of strength, it is the acknowledgement of weakness. Meekness is showing respect to other people and treat them in good manners. Meek people do not retaliate threat and reviling and can always control themselves. They refused to get provoked and sometimes, under the leading of the Spirit, they forego their right. Meek people keep their emotion in check because they understand that retaliation belongs to God. When we let go, God defends us. In addition, meekness is shown when we serve others and we submit to Father’s will.

Self Reflection

Hmm, a part of meekness is foregoing right under the leading of the Holy Spirit. It may not be an easy job. Yet, with God’s help, I can practice it again and again.
Do get a copy of Sermon on the Mount in Attributes today. Smile
