The Gentle Lamb of God “In You”

July 17, 2013

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” - Proverbs 15:1 

Christ lives in the believer; therefore we have His gentle lamb-like spirit available to each one of us. Who do people see in you - you or His gentleness?

The cure for strife is a gentle spirit. A gentle spirit has nothing to do with being male or female. It is a divinely given spirit. If you are a Christian you have this Spirit, but does He have you?

A gentle spirit should characterize every follower of Jesus Christ. The One who described Himself as “gentle and humble in heart.” (Matthew 11:29)

A godly, gentle spirit is a visible testimony of the character of God to the believer and unbeliever alike. Ask God to daily fill you up with His Holy Spirit. Rest and abide in Him.
