Blessed Are…, Matthew 5:5

Matthew 5:5 (NKJV): Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.

There is a misunderstanding that when we say meek, people think weak. However, that is not what meek means.

Dictionary.com defines it as:

  1. humbly patient or docile, as under provocation from others.
  2. overly submissive or compliant; spiritless; tame.
  3. Obsolete. gentle; kind.

In other words, it is another way of saying  humble. But why did Jesus say meek and not humble again? Well, here it is talking about a gentleness. He is referring to having that calm, gentle, kind word that would be effective in winning someone’s trust. He is talking about showing a love or compassion for someone who is hurting.

Jesus talked quite a bit of showing love to others. It is in this love that we win them over. It is the type of Love that He modeled. If we remember, wherever He went, He would take care of the needs at hand before He would deliver a message. Why? Because He cared for those in need. This is The Example of Love He Modeled.

When we are “meek”, we are putting others above ourselves. We are showing them that we really do care for them. We are setting a ground for them that they would want to come and talk to us, which, would open the door for them to receive Te Greatest Message of Love out there, that Jesus died for us, He rose again, and He will come back for those who follow Him. Or in simpler way, we have access to The Father through a Relationship with Him.

When Jesus said the meek will inherit the earth, He was saying that we will win more over to The Kingdom when we put them over us. We will show them His Love more this way than by puffing ourselves up. We show more with humility than we do with the attitude of, “Look at Me”. Instead, it should be “Look at Him”.

We will continue  be looking at the Sermon on The Mount, continuing with The Beatitudes. Although,  we need Jesus to bring us back into A Relationship with God The Father, The Sermon on The Mount deals with Heart Issues which is what we should look at when learning to have that Relationship with God.
If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.
 

It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it.

We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already. If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know.

Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance. If you find yourself in need of prayer and/or encouragement, please, feel free to call or text +1 (505) 600-1027 or email cross66info@gmail.com
