Sermon on the Mount: Meek

“5Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” ~Matthew 5

Jesus did not count Himself worthy

To be equal with God

His Father

He humbled Himself

Even to death

On the cross

Oh, meekness

Humbleness

Your reward is everything

The wisdom of the Lord

Is the key to this treasure

.

The Lord resists the proud

Casts them away

But gives grace to the humble

He teaches them

His righteous way

And hides them from His wrath

From meek

Comes more meekness

It comes from the LORD

Spirit descends

On His chosen

Makes them free from the Law

Makes them pleasing to the LORD

.

Jesus did not count Himself worthy

To be equal with God

His Father

The key to this treasure

Is the wisdom of the Lord

Everything is the reward

For humbleness

For meekness

Oh, on the cross

He did die

He humbled Himself

Jesus did not count Himself

Equal with God

Who are we to do it?

.

Humble

Meek

Inherit the earth

The proud

Resisted

.

“5b for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.  6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” ~1 Peter 5

“5In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:  6Who, being in very naturea God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very natureb of a servant, being made in human likeness.  8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!  9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place…” ~Philippians 2

“22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, self-control: against such there is no law.  24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” ~Galatians 5

“10A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.  11But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.” ~Psalm 37

8Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.  9He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.  10All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.” ~Psalm 25

“3Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands.  Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the Lord’s anger.” ~Zephaniah 2
