Fruits of the Spirit - Gentleness


Gentleness: Strength Under Divine Control


Joy in Approaching Gentleness as a Virtue


Let us rejoice as we embark on our journey to explore gentleness, a fruit of the Spirit that manifests when we exercise power with humility and gentleness. Contrary to the common notion that strength lies in imposition, gentleness invites us to find true strength in our ability to control and direct power with grace and humility.


Recognizing Gentleness as a Reflection of Joyful Dependence on God


Let us recognize gentleness as a reflection of our joyful dependence on God, surrendering our own power. In our quest to understand Christian gentleness, it is crucial to grasp that it is not weakness but voluntary submission to divine control. Gentleness acknowledges that true strength comes from trust in God, allowing us to live in harmony with His will.


Drawing Inspiration from Passages Leading to Deep Understanding


Let us draw inspiration from passages that lead us to a profound understanding of Christian gentleness. Meditate on the words of Jesus in Matthew 11:29, as He invites us to learn from Him, who is gentle and humble in heart.


As we explore this passage and others like it, we understand that gentleness is not merely an external behavior but a heart attitude that reflects submission to God.

Our journey to explore gentleness is a quest for a deeper understanding of the true strength that resides in submission to God. May the joy of approaching gentleness as a virtue be the beginning of a transformation in our perspective on power and control. As we surrender to gentleness, may we experience the peace that comes from full trust in God, allowing us to reflect His loving and gracious nature in all areas of our lives.


May this journey through the fruits of the Spirit be a constant reminder that, as we cultivate gentleness, we are shaping our lives in the divine image. May these fruits manifest in our actions, witnessing the transformative power of the Holy Spirit.


Shall we pray?


Gentle and humble Lord, teach us to exercise power with gentleness and humility. May our gentleness be a testimony to Your transformative love in action. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
