Gentleness Of Christians (6/13)

Steadfast With Our Difficulties… Gentleness

Our Country, as like the rest of the world, is broken. The people have turned their backs on the Church and many have turn away from God.

The time has come for us to turn this around, but how we do it depends on how well you follow your Christian teachings.

Proverbs 15:1 Teaches us that a soft word turns away wrath and that responding to evil with evil only brings more evil.

Time and time again we have watched people respond to hate with more hate and what has it gotten us? More hate! When will we as Christians wake up and respond to this?

You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great. Psalm. 18:35

1Timothy 6 teaches us to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness and gentleness. We are to do these things at all times using gentleness to turn wrath around and to bring peace to our lives as well as to others.

The answer is gentleness and respect! Today, to me, it seems people have lost respect for their fellow man and as a result respect for themselves. Jesus teaches us that gentleness and love will win over the harshest foe. A kind approach, a gentle response and a warm smile will go a long way to cool off a hot situation.

For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. What do you wish? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness? 1Corinthians 4:20-21

We are the light at the end of a long tunnel. Gentleness and love are the answers to end this violence and hate that has engulfed our nation and world. You are the first step! Will you light your candle and begin the journey to right the wrongs?

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

Join with me to begin to turn all this around.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
