Meekness

Every day, battles rage as nations or people groups try to establish supremacy over parts of the earth. Most people believe that ‘might’ will triumph over ‘right’ in the end, but Jesus suggests something different:

“The meek shall inherit the earth.”
Meek people are not weak people; their strength is self-controlled; they are submissive, non-defensive, open to correction, considerate of others, seeking the benefit of others rather than personal gain; they waive their rights in order to serve others; they are merciful and forgiving.

They do not engage in “power play”. They guide rather than control; They do not dominate or seek the highest place. They do not seek recognition. They build up rather than tear down; they are prepared to suffer loss, if it is for the benefit of others; they waive their rights, if it means others can be elevated; they take the lowest place to encourage others to shine; they serve others rather than expecting others to serve them.

They are prepared to be misunderstood and maligned by others because they are not bound by the fear or praise of men. They are not doormats because they stand for truth and are not afraid to speak it when necessary. They have no pride in their own achievements, but rather enable others to achieve. They lack self-importance, are non-entitled and non-demanding.

They are not easily offended. They are non-critical, non-judgemental, empathic, not hard-hearted; they promote others above themselves. They bear all things, endure all things and do not look for self-vindication, but trust Christ in all things.

They pursue Christ’s glory rather than their own glory. They are not boastful or arrogant. They know that they do not deserve one good thing in and of themselves, but that in Christ they possess all things. They glory in the grace of God; they glory in the cross; they deny self in order to gain Christ.
They are secure in who they are. They draw attention to Christ, not themselves. They are followers of Christ who said:

Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ESV

Church without walls

Church without walls

[2 minute read] Cell church is church without walls. People are reached right where they are. Christian witness happens in the market place and not just in the meeting place. Beginning with the obstacle of building-bound church, barriers between us and the lost are broken down and removed. The cells build bridges for the community to see Christ in action.

Living under the High Favour of God

[6 minute read] I cannot imagine anything more life-enriching than knowing that I am blessed and highly favoured by God. All the great Bible characters were not so great in themselves, but the moment the favour of God touched them, they changed nations and fulfilled their destinies.
