“What Is Meekness?”

free hit counters

Here is Isaiah Chapter 53 where the Prophet Isaiah prophesied Jesus Christ’s Death, Burial & Resurrection; I understand that Jews do not believe that Isaiah actually wrote this Chapter. Can anyone set me straight?

Isaiah 53

 1 Who has believed our message 
   and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 
2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, 
   and like a root out of dry ground. 
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, 
   nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. 
3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, 
   a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. 
Like one from whom people hide their faces 
   he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

 4 Surely he took up our pain 
   and bore our suffering, 
yet we considered him punished by God, 
   stricken by him, and afflicted. 
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, 
   he was crushed for our iniquities; 
the punishment that brought us peace was on him, 
   and by his wounds we are healed. 
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, 
   each of us has turned to our own way; 
and the LORD has laid on him 
   the iniquity of us all.

 7 He was oppressed and afflicted, 
   yet he did not open his mouth; 
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, 
   and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, 
   so he did not open his mouth. 
8 By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away. 
   Yet who of his generation protested? 
For he was cut off from the land of the living; 
   for the transgression of my people he was punished.[b] 
9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, 
   and with the rich in his death, 
though he had done no violence, 
   nor was any deceit in his mouth.

 10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, 
   and though the LORD makes[c] his life an offering for sin, 
he will see his offspring and prolong his days, 
   and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. 
11 After he has suffered, 
   he will see the light of life[d] and be satisfied[e]
by his knowledge[f] my righteous servant will justify many, 
   and he will bear their iniquities. 
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,[g] 
   and he will divide the spoils with the strong,[h] 
because he poured out his life unto death, 
   and was numbered with the transgressors. 
For he bore the sin of many, 
   and made intercession for the transgressors.

“What Is Meekness?”

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth Matthew 5:5.”

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
What does it mean to be meek? First, let me tell you what it is not before I tell you what it is.

Meekness is not weakness. The word “meek” means yielded. It literally has the idea of strength under control. When an animal, especially a horse, is domesticated, it is trained so a rider can sit on its back or so it can pull a plow. The proper term for this process is that the animal has been ”meeked.” It has been broken. Now it yields to the rider or the yoke. Now the animal exhibits strength under control. That’s what meekness is.

ACTION POINT:
Read Matthew 11:29 and 21:5. What does Jesus say about Himself and how can you emulate Him?

Five Great Truths:

1.) God didn’t HAVE to send His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to die for our sins, but He did anyway…because He loves us;

2.) Christ didn’t HAVE to let the Roman Soldiers nail Him to the Cross, but He did anyway…because He loves us;

3.) God’s Grace is sufficient;

4.) John 14:6 says that “…Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life; No one comes to The Father except through Him”;

5.) You CANNOT get to Heaven by just being a good person; you MUST confess that you are a sinner in need of a Savior and that Savior MUST be Jesus Christ. You MUST ask forgiveness of your sins, ask Christ into your heart, be obedient to His Commands and give Him control of your life.
