The Gentle Christian

              The Hebrew word for gentle or meek is anaw.  Psalm 37:11 informs us, “But the meek shall possess the land, and delight themselves in abundant prosperity.”  The word meek is used to describe a person who , out of love and obedience, openly accepts the providence and guidance of God.  He/she lives with the certainty of God’s power and presence in all of life.  The meek man or woman trusts that God knows what is best and will bring good out of evil.  Gentleness really is surrender to God.

The meek, or gentle, person does not take his or her measurements of life’s success from the

 wicked, those whose lives are in habitual rebellion against God. Rather the gentle person puts their trust in the Lord and seeks to know the good and do it.  The inner sign of gentleness is profound quietness that waits on God.  The outer manifestation is freedom from destructive anger and wrath.  There is an evident liberty in the gentle person.  Most of all, he or she abides in the Lord and His Spirit abides in him or her.  I believe this is what Jesus meant when He said that the truly happy people are the gentle!  I pray that all of us would be “gentle Christians” distinguished by self-control!

 

In Christ,
