You won't get a good definition of Biblical gentleness from the dictionary. However, from Galatians 5 Pastor Rossi defines gentleness. He then describes the gentleness of God the Father, God the Son and gentleness produced in us by the Word and Spirit of God.
Reading David ( a few years back) say, Thy gentleness makes me great, from Psalm 18:35, threw me for a minor loop, for gentleness was not in the top ten attributes of God in my mind. It is reasonable, therefore, we have the witness of Jesus: 17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. 18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. John 1:17-18 We look today at two of those tender moments in the New Testament through Jesus our Lord enlightening us of the Gentleness of God. 28 "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 "Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and YOU SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30 "For My yoke is easy, and My load is light." Matthew 11:28-30 His call to the people who would crucify Him. And… 21 And looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." 22 But at these words his face fell, and he went away grieved, for he was one who owned much property. Mark 10:21-22 His call to the Rich young man who could claim adherence to the whole Law of God…save the first precept of that Law, you shall have no other gods before you. We meditate on the kindness and gentleness of our call to salvation. And since He bids me seek His face, Believe His Word and trust His grace, I'll cast on Him my every care, And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!"

Why is meekness so rarely found among believers? Because so few know what it is to be truly poor in spirit and to mourn for their sins. Many believers think they have everything under control and have the Christian life completely figured out, and with pride, they fail to depend entirely upon the Lord, recognize their sin as heinous in God's sight, and forget to fly to Him for grace. In today's episode, Dustin explores Jesus' words in Matthew 5:5, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."

Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. Self-control. Of course, you know this list—the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23. Much has been written about this list and how we can better find and embrace these traits in our lives, as evidence of being a Jesus follower. The marks of our godly character. But author Jessica Thompson asks: Has it ever occurred to you that the fruit of the Spirit are also the characteristics of God? Can it be that God loves us with the fruit of the Spirit? And only when we are secure in that love can we display it to others? Jessica's new book, “How God Loves Us: 40 Days to Discovering his Character in the Fruit of the Spirit,” is 40 readings designed to take you deeper into the love God has for you. She's the author of several books, a frequent speaker, part of the podcast Front Porch with the Fitzes and is the director of church life at RISEN Church in San Diego, California.

As part of God's new family in Jesus, we have been given a new identity. On the basis of this identity, we are called to live a different way. Paul uses the analogy of putting on new clothes - compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. This is the ethos of our new family. And we've been given the vocation of revealing God's character to creation by living this way.

Psalm 18:35 35 Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation, And Thy right hand upholds me, And Thy gentleness makes me great. When this verse first jumped out at me, I was more than a little startled. I had never really thought of the gentleness of God, especially as He reveals Himself in the Old Testament. Yet, David knew the gentleness of God made him great. In our effort to examine how David learned of the gentleness of God, we find a merciful chance to meditate on how God teaches us of His gentleness. The fruit of our meditation… Psalm 118:7a 7 The LORD is for me among those who help me; Matthew 5:5 “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. Holy God, we pray for a gentle spirit. nd since He bids me seek His face, Believe His Word and trust His grace, I'll cast on Him my every care, And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!"

Jesus Followers Are “Commissioned" to “Make Disciples” and Not to Become Members of an Exclusive Holy Club MESSAGE SUMMARY: We need to welcome new excited Followers of Jesus as members of our Non-Exclusive global fellowship as Followers of Jesus. Those of us who have been brought up in the church or have been in the church for a while can get caught up in our perceived personal righteousness. We get used to the presence of God and His peace in our lives. However, we then encounter a new Followers of Jesus. These new Christians, before their conversion, were living in the ways of the world without God's peace. Now, these new believers are so excited with their new life; however, their outward manifestation of their conversion may not “fit” with our personal Christian behavioral norms. Sadly, too many modern Christians judge and condemn these new, excited believers for their enthusiasm rather than loving, encouraging, and embracing these new Followers of Jesus. We can learn from Jesus' rebuke of the Pharisees, who exhibited similar non-supportive behavior of Christians in Matthew 5:20: “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”. TODAY'S PRAYER: Father, when I read even part of the story of Job, I too am overwhelmed by your “wildness.” Your ways and timing are beyond me. Job moved from hearing about you to having “seen you.” Lead me, Lord, on a pathway so that I too can pray as Job prayed: “My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you” (Job 42:5). In Jesus' name, amen. Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 89). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Insensitivity. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit's fruit of Gentleness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

Gentleness can feel like a lost cause and a waste of time. Especially when it comes to standing up for ourselves and other people in the face of a cruel and hostile world. But I believe there is more to gentleness than meets the eye. And while some may feel tempted to conceptualise it as flimsy or weak, it's not. In fact, it sits as the backbone of deep inner strength and human resilience. Gentleness creates the conditions for better relationships and healthier lives. It is underpinned by a deep spirit of rebellion and is always an option when we feel stuck in life's weeds. Because it can radically influence how we hold ourselves, relate to others, and engage with our future hopes and dreams. As a result, we can find fertile ground for more deep, intentional, and meaningful growth to occur in and around our lives. So let's spend some time looking at what gentleness is (and isn't), in order to nurture the conditions for more of it to emerge through the cracks. ContentsWhat IS Gentleness? | 0:57How Do Most People Describe Gentleness? | 10:36Gentleness is Strength | 13:00Gentleness is Rebellion | 13:59Gentleness is Compassion | 26:22Gentleness is Rhythm | 28:36Gentleness is Joy | 29:24Gentleness is Big Enough To Hold All of Us | 30:26Gentleness is Awareness | 32:00Gentleness is Playful | 35:06What Does Gentleness Make Possible? | 19:36Universalising Connection | 20:14Safety | 21:00Creativity | 21:14Culture | 21:38How to Create The Conditions for Gentleness | 22:30Holding On | 22:47Letting Go | 25:00Conclusion | 26:23 What IS Gentleness? | 0:57 To be honest, gentleness is not easy to define. But that's also part of what makes it so beautiful to think about. You can't package it. Or sell it. And you can't force it into a 5 step process. Gentleness is more like an ever-present question. It speaks softly into the space between the lines of life. And it invites us to pause and reflect on the kind of world we are creating with the choices we are making. How Do Most People Describe Gentleness? | 10:36 Caring. Kind. Intentional. Softness. Firmness. Accepting. Holding Account. Trustworthy. Warmth. Patience. Slow. Absorbing. Engulfing. Enriching. Unconditional. Safety. Humility. Nurturing. Avoiding deliberate harm. Mindful. Integrity. Calmness under pressure. Honesty. Grit. Respect. Backbone. Will. "A firm back and a soft front". Patience. Home. Responsibility. Open. Accepting mistakes. Wholehearted. Peace. Encouraging. Padded. These are words that were sent to me when I asked readers how they would define gentleness. It seems clear to me now that gentleness is a force of the in-between. Indeed it is neither "this nor that". It is both soft and firm. It holds to account while accepting mistakes. Likewise, it is safe and gritty, strong and humble. Gentleness is Strength | 13:00 Gentleness breeds peace, integrity, and consistency of character. It is not volatile or abrupt in its response to the world. It is able to hold, absorb, and soften the harsh edges of life. “Most of us, I believe, admire strength. It's something we tend to respect in others, desire for ourselves, and wish for our children. Sometimes, though, I wonder if we confuse strength and other words–like aggression and even violence. Real strength is neither male nor female; but is, quite simply, one of the finest characteristics that any human being can possess.” – Mr Rogers This quote suggests that on the one hand, gentleness is strength. While simultaneously true strength comes from a place with gentleness at its core. Gentleness is Rebellion | 13:59 I started using the term 'gentle rebel' many years ago. Specifically, as a way to describe introverted and sensitive creative people. The rebel part was the fact that, by definition, authentic introverts and sensitive types go against the expectations of an extrovert-centric world. They move to the beat of their own drum rather than bending themselves ou...

The fruit of the Spirit isn' t just something we display. It's the way God loves us! Every Christian cherishes the famous passage in Galatians 5:22–23 that lists the fruit of the Spirit. Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. And self-control. These are the marks of godly character that we strive to display. But has it ever occurred to you that these are also the characteristics of God? Can it be that God loves us with the fruit of the Spirit? And only when we are secure in that love can we display it to others? Jessica Thompson is on the show today talking about the deeper love that your Heavenly Father has for you. Focusing on the majority of the fruit of the Spirit, she shows how God Himself has these attributes and lavishes them on us. Join us as we behold who He is and the nature of His love. Then prayerfully, by the work of the Spirit, we will become like Him. “To be a love offering, remember that you are loved.” Connect with Jessica: https://www.jessicathompson.co @thejesslou

They remind us to read through Galatians as we figure out what being led by and following the Spirit means. They especially call to mind the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar comparing when they were working in the flesh and when they were being led by the Spirit.Read the written devo that goes along with this episode by clicking here.

It is an interesting concept - to clothe ourselves with gentleness. Might that be one of the qualities people see first when they meet us? Might that be what we wear in our homes and in the marketplace? What would change in our world if we walked through our day with the heart of gentleness toward every creature, every person? Father, would you place this quality of character across our shoulders, that we might carry your compassion everywhere we go? Daylight Meditations is a daily podcast from CFO North America.

Pathfinder Church | March 27, 2022 | AJ MasticThe last two tools make strange bedfellows.
