1. The Spirit of Meekness
Galatians 6:1 Dear
brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who
are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right
path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.
Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of
your calling, for you have been called by God. 2 Always be humble and
gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults
because of your love.
Colossians 3:12 Since
God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with
tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Titus 3:2 They must
not slander anyone and must avoid quarreling. Instead, they should be gentle
and show true humility to everyone.
2. Meekness Under Trial

came naked from my mother’s womb, and I will be naked when I leave. The

4. A Fruit of the Spirit
Galatians 5:22-26 But
the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, and
self-control. There is no law against these things! 24 Those who
belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful
nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25 Since we are living by
the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our
lives. 26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be
jealous of one another.
5. Serving in Meekness
2 Timothy 2:24-25 A
servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to
teach, and be patient with difficult people. 25Gently instruct those who

learn the truth.

Lord delights in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
Isaiah 29:19 The
humble will be filled with fresh joy from the Lord. The poor will rejoice
in the Holy One of Israel.

blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.
8. Christ the Great

oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as
a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he
openeth not his mouth.
