He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth. Isaiah: 53:7
“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ” Mathew :21: 5
JESUS left HIS glorious abode to come down to die for all humanity. Whenever I think of HIS birth I wonder why din’t HE chose a Palace or any rich family to be born into. Why did the Great Creator -for whom and through whom everything was created that ever exist not pick a comfy posh place to be born.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. John:1:3
Even in HIS birth we can witness HIS humility and meekness. HE chose to be born through a poor virgin girl, HE chose a manger instead of a comfortable house, HE chose the lowest of all places. There was no room for them, the King of Glory was laid in the manger.
And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke :2:7
I can’t even wrap my mind around this thought, how did JESUS do that? I mean if I was in HIS place I would have chosen the most luxurious place on earth and probably the richest family. But HE never sees it that way, HE looks at the heart and for HIM one of HIS characters is meekness.
Meaning of Meek –
Let us make this our goal in life to ask the LORD to teach us how to be humble and gentle like HIM. The best part is HE is willing and ready to teach, the question is are we making an effort to learn from HIM? We can learn this quality from JESUS by spending more time with HIM and by studying and dwelling on HIS word.
“Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth”.Mathew:5:5
It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
Today with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT lets practise meekness.
Have a blessed day!
