  MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

THE NORMALCY OF THE REGENERATED HUMAN SPIRIT

 

[pt. 6 of 16]

 

A Gentle Spirit

 

*____...."in a spirit of gentleness".... Galatians 6:1 ASV

 

____Gentleness is a most necessary feature of the "inner man". It is the opposite of "harshness". God requires us to cultivate a gentle spirit. Amid the most prosperous work anyone with a gentle spirit can instantly stop on short notice from God, just as Philip did when sent from Samaria to the desert. A gentle spirit turns easily in God's Hand however He wills. It knows not how to resist God nor how to follow its own will. God needs such a yielding spirit to accomplish His purpose.

 

____A gentle spirit is no less important in human relationships. It is the spirit of a lamb which characterizes the spirit of the Cross. "When He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten[1 Peter 2:23]. This is a description of a gentle spirit.

 

 Such gentleness is willing to suffer loss; though it has the power of revenge and the protection of the law, it nevertheless has no wish to avenge itself with the arm of flesh. It is a spirit which in suffering ["for righteousness sake"] harms no one. The one who can boast such a spirit as this lives righteously themselves but never demands righteousness from others. They are full of Love and Mercy; wherever they can melt the heart of those around them.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
