The Lord’s Gentleness and Humility
Message Date: 2020-03-08
To gain us to be His beloved darling, the Lord gladly became a Man, was crucified, and became the Lamb that was once slain. He is worthy to sit on the throne because He gave Himself for us, and He is gentle and humble. Isaiah chapter 42 says, “A bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.” The Lord came to the earth for us and lived for us. He took the form of a slave, preached the truth, and deeply comforted us. Matthew chapter 11 says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…for I am gentle and lowly in heart.” Those who are proud are not like the Lord, and they don’t have rest in their hearts. Only the Lord Himself knows how glorious He is; yet He became a baby, humble and submissive. He entered deeply into our needs, died for us, and now lives in our hearts forever. The Lamb is mentioned throughout the whole Book of Revelation; rightly should He be the centre of focus, because He gave Himself. Indeed, what He did shook the universe. The Gospel of John tells us that the Son of God became a Man, and it recorded the Lord’s personal encounters with different individuals; one by one, He drew near to each wounded spirit, like the bruised reed and faintly burning wick, with His gentle loving-kindness.
