2020 SCRIPTURE OF THE YEAR: I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 NRSV
Meekness is not heard about much in today’s world even though it is the key to our future while we live here on this earth. ABIDING WITH MEEKNESS is practicing humble dependence upon the vine of Christ. Just as the branch receives life-giving nourishment from the vine, the power to bear much fruit lies in this connection. These words of Jesus confirm this truth...
God blesses those who are humble (meek), for they will inherit the whole earth. Matthew 5:5 NLT
But those who think themselves great shall be disappointed and humbled; and those who humble themselves shall be exalted. Matthew 23:12 NIV
TRUE MEEKNESS IS POWER UNDER GOD’S CONTROL
Yielding to our Power Source is required – it is a moment by moment way of controlled living. A meek spirit is ours when we totally abide in Christ through all of life’s circumstances…not a selective abiding. He is Lord of all or He is not Lord at all!
These words to an old hymn say it all…
God’s way is best I will not murmur
Although the end I may not see…
Where He leads I’ll meekly follow
God’s way is best, is best for me.
CHALLENGE: Consider a “DAY OF MEEKNESS” and see what God can do…
- Quickly give credit to others
- Quickly thank the Lord for each good thing that comes your way
- Quickly listen to an opposing view
- Quickly do a job no one else wants to do
BE MEEK - BEAR FRUIT - BE BLESSED!
