Meekness and Gentleness of Christ

Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ. (2 Corinthians 10:1)

As Christians, we are told to be meek and gentle like Christ.

Paul desired to be meek and gentle.

To be meek and gentle is to keep our strength under control.

As Christians, we are told to keep our spiritual strength under control in humility and gentleness.

The world uses and abuses power for ungodly purposes. But we are to keep power under control for godly purposes.

We don't exercise our spiritual authority like the world does.

Our meekness and gentleness can and do win souls for Christ.

The path to spiritual power is through our weakness!

Often, those who are small have great spiritual power!

We use divine power to pull down earthly strongholds.

Nothing can exalt itself against the knowledge of God.

Nothing can escape the Judgment seat of Christ.

When the time comes, all disobedience will be punished.

Christians may be weak and insignificant to men. But they are not weak and insignificant to Christ.

God's power is at work in their weakness.

Never underestimate the meekness and gentleness of Christ in His People.
