Meekness

Moses started as a comfortable, prosperous man, a murderer with questionable character, but God had a different plan. Like a master jeweler grinding a gem, God chastened Moses with hardship and trial and showed him His glory until he was the meekest man on earth. Foreseeing modern man’s wrong and impotent definition of humility, God was pleased to use Moses the meek to overthrow the world superpower of Egypt. But Moses wasn’t meek enough and failed to enter the Promised Land. God Himself had to descend and live a life meek and lowly of heart. In meekness, Christ commanded, “Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.” In meekness, Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry, and prayed for little children. In meekness, Christ pronounced woes upon the Pharisees. In meekness, Christ was crucified in weakness. In meekness, Christ was raised in the power of the Holy Spirit. In meekness, Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father ruling over heaven and earth. Christ speaks with authority when he says, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”
