The Mighty Meek

Sermon Overview
Scripture Passage: Matthew 5:5

Matthew 5:5 says, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus revealed that it is not the mighty men who are blessed–it is the mighty meek.

Meekness is not weakness. Jesus was meek, yet He was a strong man. To be meek means to be yielded, to have a compliant spirit. Meekness is strength under control. When we were created, God put certain drives, instincts, and ambitions into our very natures. These are not evil in themselves, but they must yield to the Holy Spirit so that we may bring Him glory and honor.

While some believe releasing or restraining our strength will lead to control, true meekness comes after we see ourselves as poor in spirit. Once we are broken over our condition, we can develop strength under control.

Step One: Submit to the Son of God.
Matthew 11:28-30 says:

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle [meek] and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

Jesus offers our wild spirits rest and invites us to submit to His lordship and learn true strength from Him.

Step Two: Receive the Word of God.
We cannot snatch pieces of the Bible to feed our pride or our opinions.

Adrian Rogers says, “The Bible is not meant to be interesting; it’s meant to be disturbing.”

We must welcome the Word into our lives with humility, reaching out to Jesus Christ with both hands, letting Scripture be our bridle and bit.

Step Three: Be Filled with the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit of God produces meekness in us; we simply bear the fruit of it.

When we are meek, we will receive our inheritance. This dynamic is explained in 2 Corinthians 6:10, which says, “…as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.”

Apply it to your life
Have you yielded to the Holy Spirit and developed a meek spirit? Take these steps today: submit to God, receive His Word, and be filled with His Spirit.
