Wilderness Voice Making it Real – Pt 3
The gentleness to which Paul refers to must not be determined us, but rather by God – (Spirit-led gentleness). This type of gentleness is not operating under one’s own power or approach, but that of Christ who is gentle. (Matt. 11:29) Our approach is controlled by His approach. When dependent upon Christ in humility, our movements are led by the Spirit of Christ. It’s gentleness that removes harshness that comes by forcing things to be, and allows others the free will choice.
Ephesians 4:1-3 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
