Christians are not weak like the world thinks. Christians have the power of God’s Grace that is witnessed in the eyes of God. Meekness is the character of a child of God that “shows” the surrendered life in Christ. The believer’s white flag of surrender goes up! I give up Lord! I’m yours! I’m tired of the old life. I’m totally yielded now! I want to be totally yours. I’m strong with all faith in the Savior. The character and make-up of the believer in Christ is thus “taken over” and thus “totally given” to God Almighty.
Meekness is a God-given power (under control) that is produced when people realize who Christ is. They realize the person of Christ. They realize the power of a Savior’s love for fallen man. They realize conversion is made by the power of Salvation. Christ stepped down from His Heavenly position as a Lamb of God who gave Himself for fallen man. By the Grace of God Christ tasted death like a man…so that you and I could experience the clean heart and a better life that comes with redemption of the human soul. Christ descended from Heaven, became a man, and made a way for fallen man to take hold of a better life with meekness and humility in the eyes of God.
A life of meekness in the eyes of God is not human weakness as the world thinks. Christian’s do not have the Spirit of fear. Christian’s are bold and dependant on the person of Christ. Christians know the power of God’s Grace and stay yielded to the authority of Christ! Surrender is death to self! Surrender brings life in the Spirit! Surrender is helpless without Christ! Surrender is hopeless without Christ! Surrender is through with the old life! A surrendered man is ashamed of things that used to go on before Christ came in. Surrendered to Christ is the attitude, “I can’t do it without you Jesus”. Pride is melted away. The Old Man is dead and buried never to be shown anymore. Meekness is a Spiritual characteristic shown and produced from the surrendered life found in Christ Jesus. God does not leave His children powerless. Glory to God, Christian meekness is not weakness like the world thinks.
