JESUS - meek & mild!
Jesus cares for sheep, especially the lonely and lost ones.
Satan sees Jesus as his competitor for the weak and lost sheep.
Jesus and satan are complete opposites.
Jesus whispers to us, satan bellows at us.
Satan too sees the vulnerable sheep and shouts lies to them.
Satan bombards mankind with endless false promises of comfort. But, instead he creates further restlessness in a man's doomed-to-fail vain pursuit of comfort. He steers the lost sheep away from true rest.
Jesus, as a man, learned where others weep. (See John 11)
Jesus entered into all our experiences and pain. Hence He speaks softly and writes with a divine and loving tenderness. This reveals His true heart.
Enjoy a minute taste of Jesus meek and mild:
- He does not grow weary, He gives strength to the aching and power to the weak. (See Isaiah 40:28-29)
- No one can deliver out of My hand. When I act who can reverse it? (Isaiah 13:3)
- Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze… since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you. (Isaiah 43:1-4a)
God tends His flock like a shepherd and gathers His lambs into His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. (Isaiah 40:11)
