The Meek Shall Inherit

What does it mean to be meek? We sometimes think of meek as passive or weak. But the Scriptures have a different definition, for Moses was meek. He was neither passive nor weak. He was a strong man who constantly sought refuge in the Lord. Even when the Lord was about to act with wrath on His people, Moses was bold to fall on His face before the Lord.
         Meekness has to do with submission to God. The meek man is the one who will honor God as God and submit to His will. These are the true sons and are those who inherit as sons.
         The meek are those who are honest about who God is and who they are, gladly acknowledging that all that they are and all that they possess is only by the grace of God.

         Here you are, gathered at the Table at the death of Jesus to hear the Father announce the reading of His testament, the listing of the heirs. Dear saints, you are His children, you have received a full share in Jesus Christ. So, let us rejoice and be glad.
