Gentle, Entreatable, and Merciful (May 23, 2013)

Becoming Gentle

  • Examine yourself (Matthew 7:3-5)
  • Act only out of love, desiring the best for the body of Christ
  • Follow God’s prescribed ways for church discipline
  • Pray carefully about when and how to respond
  • Treat others as brothers and sisters
    {p. 229 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

“The servant of the Lord must not strive, but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient.” (2 Timothy 2:24)

Entreatable

“You can become entreatable by making yourself available, knowing that God only allows circumstances in your life that build the body of Christ.” {p. 229 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

“Whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.  Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.” (Matthew 5:41-42)

Merciful

“You can become merciful by desiring to express the greatness of God.” {p. 230 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

“Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.”  Luke 6:36

[Read John 1-3]

John 3:17 “God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to serve the world through him.”

Father God,
Thank You for sending us Your Son who is our High Priest.  Just as Jesus is perfectly merciful and faithful to me, help me to be merciful and faithful to others.  Amen.
